  • The Decolonial Toolbox: An Educational Pathway 
    • Created by Mikana, Concordia University’s Office of Community Engagement, and the Montreal Indigenous Community NETWORK, the Toolbox provides "foundational knowledge on terminology, territories, and colonial history."
    • "In response to the over-solicitation of Indigenous organizations, the Educational Pathway allows users to learn about Indigenous realities, thereby easing the educational burden on Indigenous organizations and individuals." 
    • "It is helpful that the learning process is more independent and that the responsibility is transferred to the learners. The objective of the pathway is to gradually provide resources and stimulate reflection to understand the complexity of decolonizing and how to incorporate changes in everyday life. These stepping stones will guide readers as they embark on personal journeys toward decolonization and meaningful allyship."
  • PDF icon Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal: Towards a Meaningful Collaboration between the SPVM and Indigenous Communities
    • By Dominique Bernier, Doris Farget and Mirja Trilsch in collaboration with Quebec Native Women (QNW)
    • "This research report has been prepared in the context of mobilisation around the public issue that is missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (MMIWG) in Canada. This work examines this “social crisis” within the specific context of Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal, given that urban Aboriginal communities are an important phenomenon in Quebec, that the majority of cases of disappearances and murders of Indigenous women and girls occur within urban spaces, and that there is an inherent lack of data pertaining specifically to Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal" (p. 6).
