Date: May 8, 2019 

Time: 9:00am to 4:00pm

Location: Room TBA, Kente Building, Loyalist College, Belleville, Ontario

Registration: TBA 

Description: 

Participants will look at how to ensure policies and best practices comply with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
