Community developers and advocates are committed to working with Aboriginal people(s) and communities to promote social justice and self determination. Your work will require a solid foundation in the  legal, political and social history of Aboriginal peoples in Canada. This is necessary to deliver services and design programs which meet the needs of the communities and individuals at the local, regional, provincial and national levels.

You understand the need for careful research, analysis and strategic action in the promotion of proactive social change.  An interest in consultation, mediation and finding common ground are your foundations for thoughtful problem solving and community action.

At the heart of your career direction are community development, public education, restorative justice, political, legal or social advocacy, this requires you to understand Aboriginal and Canadian relationships with one another.
