Description

In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) issued 94 Calls to Action.  Drawing on a range of examples from health and human service settings, this webinar will explore concrete tools and strategies to support social workers as they respond to the Calls to Action in their personal and professional lives.
