BCACCS Conference

TITLE
Soaring Beside Our Children with Dignity and Determination

DATE
Join us online September 30 – October 2, 2021. 

For Indigenous parents, families, and communities, caring for children is a sacred responsibility. With heightened understanding of the importance of early learning and child care and the spotlight being focused on Truth and Reconciliation, this year the theme focuses on now being a time of action.

We have an opportunity to make real progress in determining the future of Indigenous early learning. We have a real chance to progress in our bid to self-govern and self-determine the needs of our children, families, and communities. We have renewed determination to re-assert traditional ways of caring for our children and strengthen their futures. We acknowledge that the Creator has given Indigenous Peoples the right and responsibility to initiate, design, and control programs and services for our children. We accept these rights and responsibilities and believe that by working and learning together we support child care programs to reflect the Laws of the Creator, our traditions, beliefs, and values.

Due to the pandemic, the Fall 2021 BCACCS Provincial Training Conference is being held virtually. We look forward to a time when we can once again meet in person, but to ensure the health and safety of participants and staff we have opted to continue with an online experience for the upcoming event.

Workshops will focus on:
• Taking action to support self-determination of needs
• Promoting dignity and well-being;
• Engaging in cultural activities; and
• Sharing strategies that support leadership and change

REGISTRATION
Registration is scheduled to open in August.

PROGRAM
A program and schedule will be posted soon.
