Community Information Sessions are a time to gather and exchange information on important topics. We welcome a diverse group of community organizations and presenters to lead these bi-monthly discussions to increase awareness and knowledge among our citizens. These sessions are a space where Métis people can safely learn from one another, connect to community, and enhance collective well-being.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these events will be held virtually until we can safely gather in person again.

For more information or to suggest a topic for a future Community Information Session, email mnacfs@metis.org.

 

Upcoming Community Information Sessions

 

Let’s understand what they are trying to tell us!

Behaviour is a very powerful communication tool. This seminar is for anyone who interacts with children or adolescents and would like to learn new ways of understanding and addressing challenging behaviour.

Participants will learn how to read the cues children give us, what needs the child is communicating, and choose practical strategies to connect, co-regulate, and redirect behaviours.
