Land Acknowledgement Workshop

In advance of Orange Shirt Day, the CBA Alberta Board of Directors invites members to increase their awareness about the purpose and importance of making a land acknowledgement.

Join us in a virtual workshop where we will come to appreciate the history and perspective of Indigenous Peoples across Turtle Island and build our understanding of the context for meaningful land acknowledgement in Alberta. 

You will also have the opportunity to craft a personal land acknowledgement that can be used in both work and personal settings, including at CBA Alberta events and meetings, to honour the Indigenous communities on whose land we live, learn, work and play.


Moderator: Kyle Kawanami (CBA Alberta Executive Committee Treasurer)

Workshop Leader: Annie Korver (Principle, Rise Consulting)
