Canadian Centre for Victim’s of Torture – National Trauma-Informed Care Project

You are invited to participate in the Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture (CCVT)’s Train the Trainer: National Trauma-Informed Care Project. Having delivered this training in Ontario, we are now extending our invitation to target settlement organizations, sponsorship agreement holders, and institutions throughout Canada.



The project’s purpose is to develop national tools and manuals and provide professional training for those working with survivors of torture, genocide, and crimes against humanity. This will help all of us share our expertise and develop best practices that we can all use in our agencies. Your participation and feedback are valuable to this project.  

The input you give and the experiences you share will be used to re-evaluate the tools, manuals, and professional training that we all have developed. This training will launch across Canada starting Thursday, October 13th, 2022 @ 1PM-4PM EST and will run every second Thursday of every month for a total of 5 training sessions, ending on Thursday, February 9th, 2023@ 1PM-4PM EST. The training will be delivered in English; however, French interpreters will be available.

To ensure everyone has an opportunity to participate, each organization can register a maximum of 2 participants and 2 waiting lists. We invite you or your senior manager to complete and send back the registration form. The registration will be free of charge. We would hope to have your response by Tuesday, August 31th, 2022.

Leadership and Conflict Management in Settlement Practice

The course is designed for workers in the settlement sector, regardless of their role, interested in becoming more effective leader and settlement professional. This course is focused on personal and professional development in the four key domains of leadership in the settlement and integration sector: Personal Leadership Intelligence, Leading People, Navigating Systems and Leading Organizations. After the course, you will walk away with a deeper understanding of the context of leadership in the settlement sector, how to lead conflict towards transformation, your own identity as a leader, and an action plan for your continued development as a leader.

Audience: Anyone interested in becoming an effective leader
