Beginning in 2019, in partnership with Women and Gender Equality Canada, LFMO has embarked on a five-year project to develop a Trauma-Informed Resource Toolkit that will support survivors of gender-based violence when they access service providers.

Service providers are beginning to use Trauma-Informed Care practices when working with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples, but it is often through a pan-Indigenous lens, ignoring or erasing experiences and realities unique to Métispeople . Métis survivors are affected by the legacy and ongoing trauma of colonization, including residential, day and boarding schools; the loss of culture, family and community through the child welfare system; and through intersecting forms of violence, including racism and sexism.

Building on existing and ongoing research and data collection, LFMO is developing a process for community engagement that will help review, evaluate and inform our Resource Toolkit in the coming months.

While this Resource Toolkit will not serve as a service provider itself, it can be disseminated to frontline service workers when working with Métis clients. The Resource Toolkit will be national in scope, but will include provincial snapshots with a compilation of service providers that are available in each region.

Stay tuned as this project moves forward!
