Indigenous Work

MCC's Indigenous work program works to repair the broken relationships between broader Canadian society and Aboriginal peoples. MCC pursues this goal as partners in God's work of reconciliation in three ways:

Dialogue

Activities that promote respectful understanding across cultures. This includes the production of educational materials, learning exchanges, and longer–term placements of non-Aboriginal people in First Nation settings.

Advocacy

MCC attempts to stand with Aboriginal peoples who are marginalized by governments or corporations. It does so through direct advocacy when invited and by participation in the interchurch KAIROS: Aboriginal Rights Committee.

Community Building Support

MCC assists some Aboriginal communities in the preparation of community economic development plans and places volunteers in community development projects. MCC is also a partner in the administration of the Jubilee Fund which issues grants for education and other projects.
