JLP welcomed 18 new facilitators to the British Columbia/Yukon region

The Joint Learning Program community of facilitators continues to grow.

Eighteen selected participants were guided through an Orientation Session November 26-30, led by JLP Program Officers Rachel Besharah and Nathalie Duquette. In-training facilitators practiced new facilitation and communication skills featuring three JLP workshops, namely Understanding the Collective Agreement as a demo and Duty to Accommodate and Respecting Differences and Anti-Discrimination in breakout sessions. 

‘The JLP Facilitator’s Orientation equipped me with the tools to help participants grow in their learning’ said Julia Hobbs from Service Canada (ESDC).

‘Very worthwhile - a great professional development opportunity’ remarked Anita Sangharafrom Correctional Services Canada (CSC).
