English in Ontario
Due to the constantly evolving situation with the pandemic, programs will be flexible and may be subject to potential modifications.
Explore concepts of Social Justice from an Indigenous perspective while travelling through Ontario visiting small communities and urban centres. Along the way, you will examine texts by local Indigenous authors which focus on the unique experiences of Canada’s Indigenous peoples.
We begin in Toronto, a bustling, multicultural city rich in history and art. We make our way to Brantford where we will participate in a traditional storytelling session. Next, we visit Midland, where we will learn about the complex history of the many Indigenous bands who call the region home.
We make our way to Sault Ste. Marie where we will tour Shingwauk Hall, a former residential school located on the Algoma University campus. We end our trip back in Toronto with a chance to reflect on the atrocities of the past while also looking forward to creating a more equitable future for all of the people who call Canada home.
Here are some of the exciting experiences included in the program.
