Since April, CBC/Radio-Canada has been conducting engagement sessions with Indigenous individuals, communities and organizations across Canada - to listen and bring forward their input into how the national public broadcaster can represent and reflect diverse Indigenous cultures, interests and needs. 


On Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2022, we will be in St. John's (NL) to connect with Indigenous Peoples on the unceded, traditional territory of the Beothuk and the Mi'kmaq and get their input to help us build CBC/Radio-Canada's first National Indigenous Strategy.

The engagement sessions take the form of meet and greets, where exchanges take place between our Indigenous staff and Indigenous participants, who meet around a meal so we get to know each other better. 

The sessions will begin a constructive dialogue on how CBC/Radio-Canada represents and reflects different Indigenous interests, needs and cultures in its upcoming National Indigenous strategy.

Here are the details:

  • Sept. 14, 2022
  • Noon - 4:30 p.m.  (Lunch is provided and starts at noon)
  • First Light Centre for Performance and Creativity
  • 42 Bannerman St., St. John's, N.L.

Advance registration is required. To register for this session, please contact info@ildii.ca 


CBC/Radio-Canada is honored to share the space and respectfully acknowledge the land on which we gather as the ancestral homelands of the Beothuk, whose culture has been lost forever and can never be recovered. We also acknowledge the island of Ktaqmkuk (Newfoundland) as the unceded, traditional territory of the Beothuk and the Mi'kmaq. And we acknowledge Labrador as the traditional and ancestral homelands of the Innu of Nitassinan, the Inuit of Nunatsiavut, and the Inuit of NunatuKavut. We recognize all First Peoples who were here before us, those who live with us now, and the seven generations to come. As First Peoples have done since time immemorial, we strive to be responsible stewards of the land and to respect the cultures, ceremonies, and traditions of all who call it home. As we open our hearts and minds to the past, we commit ourselves to working in a spirit of truth and reconciliation to make a better future for all.
