Land Acknowledgment

Centennial College is proud to be a part of a rich history of education in this province and in this city. We acknowledge that we are on the treaty lands and territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and pay tribute to their legacy and the legacy of all First Peoples of Canada, as we strengthen ties with the communities we serve and build the future through learning and through our graduates.

Today, the traditional meeting place of Toronto is still home to many Indigenous People from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work in the communities that have grown in the treaty lands of the Mississaugas. We acknowledge that we are all treaty people and accept our responsibility to honour all our relations.

imagineNATIVE’s Media Production Guide to Working with First Nations,
Métis and Inuit Communities, Cultures, Concepts and Stories

This guide, made available by imagineNATIVE, “provides cultural principles, key findings from a national consultation process, and best practices for filmmakers, production companies, and funders when depicting Indigenous content on screen, and how communities can be collaborative partners”.

Indigenous Screen Office’s Protocols and Pathways

The ISO continues to develop resources and share wise practices for working with Indigenous peoples, stories and communities. Protocols and Pathways are central to shifting industry practices for Indigenous productions, and for furthering the ISO’s mandate to foster and support Indigenous narrative sovereignty on screens. There has been tremendous uptake since the release of the protocols, and as production teams begin to formally implement various practices, they are seeking a deeper understanding of how to apply protocols throughout their process.

Centennial College’s Indigenous Strategic Framework

Centennial College’s Indigenous Strategic Framework (ISF) provides a unique outline for reconciliation and healing within the institution requiring the embrace and reflection of post-colonial ways of seeing and doing. The ISF consists of four overarching goals: Strengthen Our Responsiveness, Respectful Learning Environments for Indigenous Community Engagement, Increase Indigenous Learner Success, Develop Research, Scholarship and PD Initiatives, and Transitions to Employment.
