The City of Edmonton is hosting community conversations to learn more about how we can strengthen relationships with urban Indigenous peoples. You are invited to help guide how City employees can be better advocates, connectors, partners and witnesses to the Indigenous population. These four roles have been identified as the ways that City of Edmonton employees can best support Indigenous communities.

The City invites you to help further develop each of these roles at the following community sessions. Please join us for as many events as you are able.

  • Light refreshments will be served at each of the events
  • Bus tickets can be provided if needed
  • All sessions will be child-friendly

About The Framework

The intent of the framework is to understand how the City of Edmonton can build strong, healthy relationships with the urban Indigenous community. As a ‘living document,’ the Framework will evolve as community needs and contexts change. 

The framework was inspired by the Urban Aboriginal Accord of 2006, and since 2015 the Indigenous Framework has been co-created with more than 40 Indigenous organizations, not-for-profits and post-secondary institutions and government entities.
