Rooted in Justice & Regeneration
for the Land & People
We work to build the capacity for transformational change for individuals, communities, organizations and institutions. This includes challenging systems & behaviours that are inherently violent towards the land, humans & all beings.
We offer 3 areas of work
for systemic change
Designed to help you begin exploring the area of focus, its roots and how it shows up...
open/public | no pre-reqs | pwyc$
Our workshops are a great first step to explore an area, providing an overview, equipping you with the basics and preparing you for a deeper dive in one of our training series on the same topic.
We believe in experiential learning. In workshops we guide you through a combination of theory, real world case studies, facilitated discussion and resources to apply to your own work and life.
You'll get a chance to hear from other people in the field, to share your own experiences and to connect with a network of others working towards similar goals.
Some workshops we have offered in the past include:
Confronting Xenophobia: Building Inclusion and Solidarity with Immigrants
Building an Intersectional Analysis within Social Justice Work
Transforming Toxic Masculinities
Doing the Work: Reckoning with White Supremacy
Taking Action against Police Violence and Transforming Responses to Harm
Environmental Justice at the Intersections: Exploring Migrant struggles, Climate Change and Canadian Colonization across Borders
Anti-colonial Frameworks for Community-Engaged Work: Undoing the harmful practices of research

Deep dives into the roots of systemic issues and tools to transform them.
designed for you | private | series
While our workshops are open, sometimes one-off events for the general public, our trainings are designed specifically for you/your collective/your organization and will take place over multiple sessions, with the aim to build the capacity of your team, [create systems of support,] and internalize the skills, knowledge and awareness you need to continue the work beyond the scope of the training.
Our trainings give you the tools and teach you how to use them in your own work.
We offer Train-the-Trainer programs as well as trainings for administrators, teachers, facilitators, start-up teams or specific departments within your organization.
