Knowledge Exchange

We look forward to growing this section of the website with valuable information that may be helpful to you and facilitate knowledge sharing.  We will be bringing over some of the content from the previous site from the library in the months to come.  In the meantime, here are some links you may find useful

These 14 videos provide Canadian Indigenous disaster evacuees with an opportunity to share their experiences and knowledge with a broad, international audience. Every year hundreds of Indigenous people are evacuated from their homes and some remain displaced for months or even years. Indigenous evacuees have important stories to share about this largely invisible situation. Through the videos, participants explain in their own words the short and long-term impacts from evacuations, highlight how pre-existing strengths and challenges influenced their capacities to cope with the evacuation, and outline their thoughts on important insights and lessons gained. These videos capture perspectives from four communities: Lytton First Nation/Kanaka Bar Band, BC; Cormorant Island, BC; Long Plain First Nation, MB; and Eskasoni First Nation, NS.
