Effective September 1, 2019, Global Affairs Canada (GAC) will require all partner organizations to have a code of conduct that prevents and responds to sexual exploitation and abuse in order to be able to submit a complaint. request for financing.

In this webinar for small and medium organizations, Sherry Hornung, GAC's title, will explain the AMC requirements and will be available to answer your questions.
Anne Delorme will present a new tool developed by the CQFD of AQOCI: A canvas of code of conduct. This framework can be adapted by small and medium organizations according to their institutional context.

Reverse Millennial Town Hall and Youth Forum
Thursday, March 7th and Friday March 8th 2019
Kwanlin Dün Cultural
NCGC Is proud to support the second annual Milennial Town Hall and Youth Forum.
The Millennial Townhall was initiated, in 2018, by the Youth of Today Society (Publisher of Shakat Journal), the Kwanlin Dun Youth Advisory Committee to Council and the youth of Ta’an Kwach’an Council. The idea was born out impromptu youth round-table held at the youth centre, in the fall of 2017. Facilitated by Teagyn Vallevand and Aurora Hardy, of Youth for Lateral Kindness, participants spoke of the hard issues they were faced with each day.
As the discussion continued, it was realized a greater conversation was needed — not just with local youth but those from the communities as well. Round-table participants asked for a gathering that would empower the voices of young people; and, provide a safe space where they could hold an open and meaningful dialogue, among themselves and with decision-makers. At the 2018 Millennial Town Hall, young people formulated questions for elected quests. The panel included: Premier Sandy Silver, Mayor Dan Curtis, Grand Chief Peter Johnson, Chief Kristina Kane and Chief Doris Bill.
What is new and exciting about the 2019 Millennial Town Hall:
1) It is being designed as a Reverse Town Hall — with young prominent voices providing their perspective on key issues and a audience of elected leaders attending as keynote listeners and presenting questions.
2 ) We want our participants and leaders to feel included and everyone is welcome. Please ensure to register as we do have limited space.
3) The event is intended for youth between 16-25 years of age with Elders/Seniors in attendance.
