As a result of the Giwetashkad Indigenous Homelessness Plan, this cultural safety training was developed and is being offered to service providers in London’s housing and homelessness sector. The goal of the program is to inform and improve relationships with partner agencies so that Indigenous peoples who are experiencing homelessness can have better, more culturally relevant intakes and assessments in the community.
Giiwitaabiwag is Anishnaabemowin (Ojibwe language) word and concept that can be translated to “returning to sit in a circle.”

Indigenous Training Series
Join us by registering your organization for a training module!
We are offering a training series to build capacity for homelessness services providers to work more effectively with Indigenous peoples and to adapt services to meet their needs. Together, we can ensure that London’s homelessness & housing services are culturally safe and responsive spaces for Indigenous peoples to access the support they need.
Our training sessions utilize Indigenous approaches to learning such as interactive discussion, relationships building, and exposure to cultural teachings. All sessions are designed for leadership and for frontline workers.
Sessions are available in-person at Atlohsa’s Head Office, or remotely via ZOOM with a fee starting from $500.00, with minimum of 8 participants to a maximum of 15 participants per session.
Organizations may book multiple sessions. We recommend that learners pursue modules in order, for the most fulsome benefit of information
Note: In-person sessions will follow COVID-19 health and safety protocols (screening, contact tracing, distancing, masks).
