Registration for the 2021 Collaborative Learning Day is now open! Given the unprecedented challenges over the past year, let’s explore lessons learned, managing today’s transitions, and preparing for the future.

The FNPSS and the BC Federal Council is inviting Human Resource (HR) Practitioners, Managers, and Band Administrators from BC First Nations communities to come together virtually for a two, half-day Collaborative Learning event, focused on the theme of Human Resources and preparing for the future.

Through breakout sessions, panel discussions, and a keynote, speakers will draw from their personal experiences, wisdom, and share valuable strategies and tangible resources on the topics listed below.

Day 1 Panel Discussion: Human Resources – Current Realities and Charting a path forward

A diverse open panel of government/provincial and First Nations speakers will together discuss HR lessons learned and how human resources has been affected by COVID 19. Speakers will draw from their experience and discuss learnings from the past, transition periods, planning for the future and what that looks like. COVID-related legislation, return to work, mask/vaccination, virtual work, and other government facing initiatives will come from the Provincial Government side. First Nations speakers will provide Indigenous context and best practices on COVID-19 related HR practices.

Leona Baptiste, Osoyoos Indian Band; Diane Carrier, Canadian Aboriginal Human Resources Management Association; Melissa Morden, Employment and Social Development Canada; Sunny Wong, Canada Revenue Agency; Jennifer Wiegele, Mathews Dinsdale & Clark LLP.

 

Day 2 Keynote Speaker: Resiliency: Diversity as Strength

Keynote speaker, Dr. Leroy Little Bear, will draw from his wisdom and expertise as a Blackfoot knowledge keeper to highlight strategies to promote health and wellness, along with resiliency during challenging times.

Dr. Leroy Little Bear

 

Day 1 and Day 2 Breakout Sessions:

Planning and Preparing for a Return to the Office: Amidst provincial restart plans, ‘Return to work’ is looking to become more of a reality all organizations will need to act upon. This session will discuss the steps and approaches to creating a ‘Return to work’ planning strategy.

Kelly Parkin, Employment and Social Development Canada; Qwuyumaat (Eyvette) Elliott, Ever Plan.

Courageous Conversations: A constant tool that is becoming increasingly valuable in the workplace is the ability to lead difficult and courageous conversations. Jeanette Proulx, from Canada School of Public Service, will provide tools and frameworks on how to approach these challenging conversations from a strategic and positively impactful perspective.

Jeanette Proulx, Canada School of Public Service.

Learn more about new legislation – Violence in the Workplace and Cultural Leave:

Changes and alterations that have been made to previous violence in the workplace and cultural leave legislation. The topic of new legislation in relation to violence in the workplace and cultural leave will be unpacked by industry professionals in this breakout session.

Scott McCann, Harris and Co.; Melissa Morden, Employment and Social Development Canada.

 

A Deeper Dive into Labor Code Part 3 – tidbits around hiring, firing, and record keeping: This session will discuss Part 3 of the Canada Labor Code which touches on topics such as termination, keeping records, paying wages, types of leave, and more. In relation to workers’ rights and fair and equitable conditions of employment, speakers will dive into the details and conditions of these line items.

Joshua Sutherland, Harris and Co.; Siobhan Hutchinson, Employment and Social Development Canada.

Building your Conflict Resolution Toolkit: Mediator & Arbitrator, Scott Siemens, will be sharing some practical tools for HR Professionals and “people leaders” on how to recognize conflict in the workplace as well as how to begin the process of helping disputing parties work toward resolution. This session will be of interest to those without formal mediation training, and also provide value to the more experienced managers.  We can all benefit from more tools in our toolkit.

Scott Siemens, Federal Interdepartmental Conflict Management Practitioner.

What you need to know about Duty to Accommodate: Duty to accommodate the needs of employees has always been an important aspect of HR and management, but during the past year the need to be aware of and accommodation of a diverse set of employee needs, including mental health, has increased in importance.

Melanie Samuels, Singleton Urquhart Reynolds Vogel LLP.
