CFRAC: Beginner & Intermediate Nehiyaw Language Classes

The ᓀᐦᐃᔭᐤ (Nêhiyaw or Plains Cree) Language Lessons Program is an ongoing offering of the Centre for Race and Culture that is unique to their organization.  This is due to the methodology used by Reuben Quinn, the language instructor and project coordinator.

The objective of these language lessons is to teach ᓀᐦᐃᔭᐍᐏᐣ (Plains Cree language) using this holistic approach based on 44 symbols, 14 consonants and the eight-direction syllabic system. The directions’ philosophies are included as the lessons are taught in the manner of natural law.

IEPs & The Labour Market

Every Monday from July 13, 2020 – December 21, 2020, 1PM – 2:30PM MST.

Do you help Internationally Educated Professionals (IEPs) find employment in Alberta? If so, these free online drop-in sessions are for you!

These drop-in sessions will explore how job search counsellors can help IEPs tackle the labour market and identify their specializations and accomplishments.

In each of these sessions, participants will be presented with a case study and then split into groups. They will be asked to discuss and consider some questions, such as: What is the main obstacle this IEP is facing? What job search strategy would you recommend to this IEP? What changes would you recommend they make to their resume? The groups will then be asked to presented their findings and discuss ideas and strategies with the greater group.

This ongoing series will cover a wide range of professions, and each session will feature a different case study. While we recommend attending all sessions, it is not mandatory to do so. Participants may pick and choose which sessions they would like to register for.
