Indigenous Relations e-Training

BC’s Library Federations are very pleased to be able to offer access to additional training offered by the Indigenous Relations Academy (Indigenous Corporate Training).  All staff and Trustees of the province’s public libraries can now build on the learnings of the Indigenous Awareness course by accessing the 3-hour, virtual follow-up course, Indigenous Relations. 

As stated in the ICT course description: The fear of doing or saying the wrong thing can impede your ability to develop effective Indigenous relationships. Indigenous relations training gives you insight, strategies, tips, and suggestions necessary to overcome that fear. You will learn what to do, what not to do and why. This course paves your path to respectful and effective Indigenous relations and is the follow up course to our Indigenous Awareness training. 

Please note: library staff need to take the pre-requisite Indigenous Awareness e-Training before the Indigenous Relations e-Training.

This training is made possible with funding from the Covid Relief and Recovery grant program.  We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Municipal Affairs.

To register for the Indigenous Relations course, library staff can contact the Indigenous Relations Academy directly at  In their email, staff should use the subject heading -“BC Public Libraries – Indigenous Relations Training” and provide their name, email, phone number, library and federation names. They will be provided with a registration code specific to their library. Registrants may complete the course at their own pace. However, registrants have 30 days of access, so they must complete the course within that time frame.
