Egale also tries to reach out to diverse age groups in society through different programs and events and each year they prepare for charities that help different target groups. This paper argues that the Egale Canada Human Rights Trust has been an effective organization at drawing attention to the many different kinds of oppression that can be found throughout Canadian society, highlighting on human rights based on people’s sexual identity through community involvement, programs, and educational
Finally it will look at the intergenerational effects of the school system that live on until this day. Before Europeans arrived in North America the indigenous people had a dramatically different process of teaching their children. Miller describes three L’s: looking, listening, and learning which role models would use to teach their young what they thought they needed to know. In the case of looking, children would learn what proper behavior is and what is expected
Next, we will work to make amends with the Aboriginal communities in Canada and provide the proper education, healthcare, housing and living conditions that they need. For decades, Canada has treated the Aboriginal peoples of Canada unfairly and that must change. The Environmental Party of Canada will strive to shine a light on these issues and bring awareness
As a future teacher you want to improve the way history and societal views of Aboriginal and Torres Strait islanders is being taught, to provide a better foundation of study for students. With this in mind creating an activity that did this and was in line with curriculum knowledge and skills was a challenging task and I realized that this
The legal decision in this case could greatly impact the future of education for students who suffer from horrible circumstances that they bring to school. According to Mark Rosenbaum, an attorney with Public Counsel, “If you really want to do something about the achievement gap, childhood trauma is the place to start” (Watanabe, 2015). In my experience working with students from trauma-filled backgrounds for almost 20 years, I can attest that they bring their home lives to school, and if the education system does not address their needs the consequences for them could be devastating. Issues such as chemical dependency, poverty, violence, and involvement in the prison system are examples of potential negative outcomes for untreated mental health issues including violence and trauma. “For many, such traumas have been multiple and prolonged throughout life, and such experiences are intertwined with mental illness, substance abuse, and behavioral problems” (Whitten, 2012).
They had been abused and discriminated. Before the act, Residential Schools were organized by the Canadian government to take children away from their families for a long period of time. They trained them to do manual labor in agriculture such as woodworking and domestic work such as sewing. They were not allowed to speak their own language, and acknowledge their own heritage and culture. If they did, they would be punished badly.
Fundamental for domestic violence program is educating the public, specifically providing information regarding several forms of abuse and seniors’ rights, in order to raise awareness of this social issue. Another strength of this program is the existence of shelters for older men and women victims of abuse, along with groups to support victims, hotlines for seniors victims of abuse, and counselling programs available to victims and also their families (Podnieks,
One of the categories is “Children and youth”. The goal of this category is “Work with Aboriginal communities and organizations to provide meaningful support to Aboriginal children and youth on-and off-reserve and use resources effectively” (Aboriginal Affairs, 2005). Some of the strategies for this are to promote physical development, and promote healthy habits, support children with disabilities and give children support they may need to make good life choices (Aboriginal Affairs, 2005). A program that has already done something is in this category AHWS (aboriginal healing and wellness strategy) funding is given to the Nishnawbe Aski Nation to help people learn about youth suicide and how to identify some prevention strategies (Aboriginal Affairs, 2005). Another category is “Aboriginal Education”.
“The principle of affected interests has particular relevance to social policy and to the models of policy-making” Brad and McKenzie (2010 .128). Just as Brad and McKenzie (2010) cite as an example of” most parents who are deeply concerned about the well-being of their children to the point of becoming active participants in the School Board meetings, daycare centers, or community recreation centers”…,( ) a more inclusive and anti-oppressive approach will give the frontline workers as well as clients’ guardians or parents and clients who have the “personal choice and competence” the opportunity to be involved in policy making process that affects them. (p.128). Brad and Mackenzie (2010), continued to substantiate their claims by quoting Dal (1970) who posited that “Everyone who is affected by decision of a government should have a right to participate in that government” (128). Working with people with developmental disabilities, has made me understand that frontline workers, in most cases, due to their direct engagement with clients, seem to be having a better understanding of each other than the management, who in this case is more of an outsider than
I would allow students to remap Canada related to identity. Student’s will be able to build on their own family background, ethnic groups, family experience, food etc. I would provide students with my example, but also encourage students imagine Canada how they see it. However, I would urge students to use primary and secondary sources to back up their argument. Bahbahani & Hyun (2008) argue “major step in embedding geographical thinking resides in making the curriculum problematic so that the study of geography is more a matter of challenges to thin through than it is information to be remembered” (p.3).
Refugees want to have friends and be accepted by their peers, but doing so can be difficult and turn their lives inside out. In the article “Refugee Children in Canada: Searching for Identity” the authors talk getting people to hear refugees stories, “perhaps it is
For decades in Canada, officially beginning in 1892, children were taken away from their families and put into schools that would change and take away their views and beliefs, initial knowledge, image, and identity. In the earlier stages, these schools were referred to as Industrial Schools for Indians. Today, we call them Residential Schools with Aboriginal survivors who are able to tell their stories. Aboriginal people suffered while there schools were running. This essay will compare the knowledge in a recent article to primary sources that were written while Industrial Schools were in action.
As a result of colonisation Aboriginal peoples today still face or deal with issues such as ‘stolen generation’, loss of land and culture, poor health and life expectancy and deaths in custody. As an educator, I would continue to increase knowledge to enrich all children’s development in the area of cultural awareness by developing programs that support an understanding in the below major events: o The tent Embassy o National Apology Day o National Sorry Day o Mabo Day o NAIDOC I would also involving children and their families to reflect on their own experiences and creating learning opportunities through games and resources within the centre. Another important element is to access resources from organisations such as local land councils, Aboriginal cultural and community
A. I believe one of the most challenging aspects of being a Child Care Licensing Investigator would be interacting with directors who are confrontational. I am aware that when I am requested to investigate allegations of abuse the environment that I am entering into may already be hostile because of the allegations. The job itself is very appealing to me; because of my passion to help others and protect the innocent lives of one of the most vulnerable populations, which is children. B. Completing my undergraduate degree in social work has equipped me with the necessary tools to be successful as a CCL Investigator, the internship work performed at the West Oaks Outpatient Clinic has increased my social work skill-set inclusive of the development
