ITFC has introduced the “Sharing Circle” an internal functionality of the multi faceted platform, www.itstimeforchange.ca
It is designed to provide a sense of community and belonging that supports individual community based Indigenous Service Providers.
This environment serves two purposes.
- It will allow individuals to share insights and experiences while generating innovative solutions to tasks and assignments.
- Creating an environment where individuals can learn and share will contribute to the long-term retention of the best and the brightest subject matter experts wanting to work with Canada’s non-Indigenous business community.
A “Pan-Canadian Support Network”
The ITFC “sharing circle” support infrastructure allows Indigenous Service Providers from all corners of the country to share their expertise, knowledge and insights while completing short, medium or long-term engagements with employers. Indigenous communities share common economic barriers and opportunities, yet there are local, regional and national nuances that can have a major beneficial impact in a different region of the country. Sometimes another set of eyes can make significant difference.
The Forum Q and A: allows ISP’s’ to ask questions and share best practices across the country, a Peer-to-Peer functionality allows ISPs to collaborate on a specific initiative, ISP News will keep everyone up to date on interesting developments across the country and the Comment On feature will allow ISPs to get involved and engaged in economic developments across the country.
With 700+ communities and over 75 different categories, ITFC aspires to take inclusion and engagement to unprecedented levels and build the largest Indigenous remote workforce in Canada’s history!
The customised Community based ISP Dashboard which enables individuals the opportunity to view and apply for short term, recurring and long-term engagements is where the Sharing Circle functionality is available.
The community based Indigenous Service Provider is now available to Indigenous people living “off reserve” however they must identify the community from which they are associated with.
