Ryerson University has been working towards decolonizing its curriculum, faculty and programs long before the TRC began to raise Canada's consciousness about its history of colonization. This presentation will share Ryerson's journey from its first Indigenous faculty hire in 2001, the creation of an Aboriginal Education Council, creative ways of hiring Indigenous Peoples, and implementing infusion models within various Schools and departments. In particular, the School of Social Work will be highlighted as an internationally recognized model of Indigenous content infusion within curriculum.

Learn about how a large institution came to confront its problematic history, recognize it wanted to work towards real respect, inclusion and equity of Indigenous Peoples, and some of their lessons learned along the way.
