About this Episode

As it is National Indigenous Peoples Day on Friday the 21st, we want to revisit a conversation with Charity Fleming. In this archived episode, Caitlin Plant, Program Manager at Distress and Crisis Ontario, sits down with Charity Fleming from Qualia Counselling Services to learn about National Indigenous History Month, National Indigenous Peoples Day, and how non-Indigenous settlers and allies can respectfully acknowledge, celebrate, and support these important times of awareness. In our conversation, Charity mentions the film Bones of Crows, if you would like to learn more you can do so here: Bones of Crows is a striking cinematic response to Canada's 'reign of terror against Indigenous people' | CBC Arts. Charity also shares information about the Non-Insured Health Benefits program, and its current limitations.
