Webinars are a benefit CAIS membership. Only CAIS members and Candidate members can register.

The CAIS National conversation to explore relationships with Indigenous Communities in Independent Schools is designed to bring together CAIS community participants to connect on issues and share stories surrounding our communities’ connections with Canadian indigenous populations (First Nations, Métis, Inuit and urban). This 2 hour discussion will be grounded in the foundational question: How do we as independent schools ensure awareness and access to these underrepresented groups; thereby, positively increasing the breadth and depth of Indigenous student perspectives found within CAIS schools?
