Indigenous Land Acknowledgement Guiding Framework

Land acknowledgements are an important piece of reconciliation in the context of providing care to Indigenous people and our broader work towards cultural safety.

This Indigenous Land Acknowledgement Guiding Framework developed by Behavioural Supports Ontario can support the incorporation of land acknowledgements into meetings and events. It also includes particular considerations for individuals and organizations (in particular considerations around dementia, older adults and mental health), resources for further learning and other ways to promote reconciliation.

Tools to Boost Vaccine Confidence in LTC Teams

Getting vaccinated is critical to protecting yourself, your loved ones and our most vulnerable Ontarians from COVID-19. Each person vaccinated brings us one step closer to eliminating COVID-19 from our long-term care homes and our communities.

That’s why we’re working to build vaccine confidence — and where you come in. People are more likely to listen to someone they know and trust. You can help boost vaccination rates by engaging with your colleagues and community on vaccine safety.
