April’s Caregiver Meeting will be on Saturday, April 20th, 2024 at:
Calvary Bible Church
15 Beech St., Smiths Falls, ON

This month’s speaker will be Charles Meekis.

Charles Meekis serves as the Manager of the Anishinabewaadizwin Department as well as the Cultural Liaison with the Sioux Lookout First Nations Health Authority. The Cultural Liaisons are Knowledge Keepers who provide cultural services to complement all the other services that Developmental Services provides. It can range from traditional medicines to providing a sweat lodge ceremony for clients who prefer or request these sorts of interventions. This is one way to ensure that clients from remote communities can feel culturally safe when requiring these services. This approach reflects the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions calls to action.

Charles will be sharing within this interactive session what we should know about his Nation through collaborative dialogue.
