About the Indigenous Speaker Series:

The Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University aims to respond to Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) Call to Action #92, by committing to meaningful partnerships with Indigenous communities for economic development.

We invite you to be part of this exciting weekly conversation with Indigenous knowledge keepers, entrepreneurs and artists that is sure to be a source of inspiration and information to guide two collaborative ventures: to develop an Indigenous healing garden and install Indigenous art at the Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University.

This event will have Chef Johl Whiteduck Ringuette, Owner, NishDish Marketeria and Catering and Chef Tommy McHugh, Ted Rogers School of Management, Ryerson University.

Back in December 2018, Members from the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation (MCFN) and the Ted Rogers School of Management (TRSM) came together to honour and officially install the flag of the MCFN at TRSM.

The flag acknowledges the treaty territory of the MCFN and was presented to the Ted Rogers School of Management in November 2017 as the Nation’s official education partner. The flag marks TRSM’s spirit of partnership in the building of our community, city and country. The flag now hangs on the 9th floor of TRSM near the School of Retail Management.

“I feel pride as an Anishinabe person, having our flag hang here at TRSM,” said Stacey Laforme, Chief of the MCFN. “We’re looking forward to a long relationship with Ryerson and TRSM, and this is a very good step in the right direction.”

“We’ve made a commitment to walk with each other, to remind people that a relationship is more than transactional” said Monica McKay, Director of Aboriginal Initiatives at Ryerson University. “I’m very honoured to be part of this witnessing.”
