Theme-based training events

Two-Spirit Reconciliation

PAN worked with Cree Two-Spirit community organizer, researcher and educator Harlan Pruden on Two-Spirit Reconcilation. This two-part event situated Two-Spirit people in Indigenous and colonial histories, looking at how we must work towards decolonizing Two-Spirit realities today. These sessions and resources are available on-demand.


Alcohol: Community Trends and Impact

This event was recorded and sessions are now available for viewing on demand, along with a selection of resources focused on harm reduction, peers, frontline service providers, and research.


Educators’ Roundtable: Promoting Effective STBBI, HIV, Hepatitis C and Harm Reduction Education with Indigenous People of BC

PAN works with Indigenous consultants to present the Educators’ Roundtable. The Roundtable offers participants skills and cultural competence in a variety of topics.

The 2022 Roundtable took place in March 2022 and was held virtually. Learn more about agenda.


For a number of years we have worked in parternship with First Nations Health Authority to present a face-to-face event, the Educators Forum.  COVID-19 gathering restrictions in 2021 meant the Educators’ event was virtual, which led to the Educators’ Roundtable. It ran March 23-25. Learn more and view program.

For resources from past forums, visit the Educators’ Forum resources page.
