Mental Health and Addictions

Lack of support in the area of mental illness and addiction have been a growing concern for many years.  With the arrival of COVID-19 many experts are concerned about an 'echo pandemic' of mental health challenges.  From our research over the last year we have identified three areas we believe will make a signficant postive change in the mental health and wellness of all Albertans.   For free online training on various mental health concerns including Trauma Informed Care, Grief, Crisis Intervention and more please view our webinars under the "Get Involved - Training Resources" page.

Truth and Reconciliation

Many steps with one goal Our Truth & Reconciliation Research Action Team encompasses both Indigenous Elders and Community Members and Non-Indigenous Leaders that continually examine steps we can take as a society to address the consequences of our ongoing legacy of colonization.

The Environment & The Green Line

As plans are made to re-start our economy the Environment team invites us to image a brighter climate future.  The Environment team, led by our member organization, the Climate Hub, is asking that the City of Calgary build for not just stimulus but climate through our Green Stimulus plan.

We Build Leaders

“I went to the training and discovered practical ways that I can build relationships and take action to bring about change in our city.”

Every Child Matters

Responding to the graves of 215 Children at the Kamloops Residential School

The uncovering of the truth, that there are at least 215 children buried at the Kamloops residential school, sits heavy with all of us. As we have embarked on a deeper journey of wrestling with the truth of colonization and as we have listened to residential school survivors, we remember that we have often heard stories of the children who “didn’t make it”; the children who “disappeared” and of the many who died afterwards from the impacts of abuse suffered in residential schools. Why have we treated indigenous people’s lives as so much less valuable? Why do we continue to?
