We are starting a series of consultations with our network, in order to inform our new strategic plan. More information about other consultations will be available in the coming months.

Our first consultation will be the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis (FNIM) consultation. It will take place on Zoom at 2-4pm EST on August 27th. This consultation is open to representatives from our member organizations, including staff, board members, volunteers, and the people who access their services. This consultation will be open only to people who identify with the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities. 

All participants in the consultation will be paid an honorarium of $60.  

This consultation will be moderated by our board member for Manitoba, Albert McLeod. Albert is the President of Two-Spirited People of Manitoba Inc. 

In order to allow all participants to have enough time to speak, registration for this event will be capped at 15 people.

To register, please email Teddy Syrette (teddy@enchantenetwork.ca) 

Although registration for this event will take place on a first come first serve basis, there will be spots reserved for Métis and Inuit participants, in order to ensure that we hear from different First Nations, Inuit, and Métis (FNIM) perspectives from across Turtle Island.  

For anyone (in the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities) who is unavailable at this time, or would prefer to give feedback via an alternative method, we have the following two options: 

  • Filling out this survey. Survey responses can be anonymous if you wish, however anyone who opts into leaving their contact information will be entered into a prize draw for a $60 Visa gift card.
  • Having a phone conversation with the Indigenous Liaison for the Enchanté Network, Teddy Syrette. This may be scheduled by emailing teddy@enchantenetwork.ca. 

Please note that you are able to provide feedback in more than one method (ie. by attending the Zoom consultation and/or filling the survey and/or calling Teddy). 

If you would like to provide feedback on how we are running this consultation process, or if you simply would like to chat, please email our Executive Director Emmett Lamache at emmett@enchantenetwork.ca

Our network belongs to you — our member organizations — and we are looking forward to holding these conversations over the following months.
