Things That Are Happening

Leading up to this important day, Canadians have the opportunity to listen and learn from Indigenous writers, artists, creators, and most importantly, survivors and their families of residential schools, day schools, enfranchisement policies, and the ongoing inequities facing Indigenous Peoples in Canada. It is critical to understand why September 30th, originally known as Orange Shirt Day, matters.

Many workplaces and community spaces are unsure or not confident in how to acknowledge this day in a respectful and meaningful way. Is wearing an orange shirt or posting on social channels enough? No, it’s not. Should you want to build the understanding of your team, our team of Indigenous consultants, can help. Connect with us regarding our in person or Zoom based 1 – 3 hour sessions that help businesses and organizations gain a greater understanding of how this day came to be and what can be done, individually, and as a collective to move forward the path of truth telling and reconciliation based actions.

Youth voice matters as it provides an invaluable perspective on the issues that matter most to young people.

Youth are the present and the future, and their voices are critical to creating a better path forward for all. By listening to the perspectives of young people, we can better understand the challenges they face and co-create solutions tailored to their needs.

Furthermore, empowering young people to make their voices heard is essential for their development and empowerment. It provides them with an opportunity to express their opinions and be heard, and to feel valued and respected. It is also an important part of building their confidence, resilience, and self-esteem.

Finally, listening to the perspectives of young people is vital for creating meaningful and lasting change. It ensures that their needs and experiences are considered when making decisions and policies, and it encourages more diverse perspectives and more equitable outcomes.

Youth voices are essential for creating a stronger, healthier and better future for us all.

Our consultants are leaders in their areas of interest and are the reason Three Things has been able to find the kind of success we have in each project, activity and gathering.  We are so grateful for them and we honour them.  If you’ve crossed paths with these folks, you know, like we do, that they are the foundation of the good works being done collectively by Three Things.  We are grateful they have stayed connected during these challenging past few years and have been enjoying the chance to see them, in person, working together to create change.

Pathways Thunder Bay Transitions to Shkoday Abinojiiwak Obimiwedoon

It is an exciting time in Thunder Bay, as with the support of Pathways to Education Canada and their commitment to youth led community engagement, this fall Pathways Thunder Bay, after a Bundle Transfer Ceremony, was passed along to be cared for and led by Shkoday Abinojiiwak Obimiwedoon. We are so grateful to the Regional Multicultural Youth Centre (RMYC) and young people who carried the voices of Indigenous students forward and helped launch the program.

Now with a full running program, Pathways Thunder Bay has the grade nine students who started last year in grade 10 and new students registering every month.

As the program evolves and grows, stay tuned to the amazing and important work that is taking place in Thunder Bay! As always we are humbled to walk the path forward in a good way in Thunder Bay.

There are many choices available for organizations, communities and governments when engaging with outside vendors to support their activities, develop and deliver community-based programming, offer services including program evaluations, process facilitation and communications and provide strategic advice. Most provide quality work and it can be a challenge to determine the best fit for your needs. Based on the number of clients who have engaged with us repeatedly, we believe we can be the fit you are looking for. We have found when we share values with our clients, we are able to develop lasting relationships that provide meaningful and measurable results from our work. We root our work in traditional knowledge and processes, research and science and years of experience. We are Three Things Consulting. We are an Indigenous owned and incorporated company, originally a collaboration between three innovators with a combined experience of more than seventy years in facilitation, evaluation, program design, youth and adult gathering development and management, community and youth engagement, project and research development and implementation, training and capacity building, assessment, strategic planning, partnership/program development and knowledge sharing. Our roots and process are tied to a core lesson learned from our work: people matter, are important and belong. Our focus is on engagement, development, motivation and healing. We share #the3Things with young people, their families, communities and allies reminding them that they matter, are important and that they belong.

Today we stood alongside trans young people & their families so they knew they mattered, are important, and they belong. Period.

Was proud to see, here in Kingston, where Three Things calls home, a much larger gathering of champions and allies for trans people, and powerful acts of love and care.

Here's the thing...there are many mornings that we have to give our heads a shake when we read the vitriol anchored in anger, hurt or a deep sense of inequity, (real or imagined). We can't imagine what it's like to live with that constant hatred for others and / or others ideas. It must be exhausting. We know reading it is.

Yet...we want those folks to know, the ones who don't always agree with us, those who might think differently on every topic, those who we probably will never visit with or engage in any serious conversation... matter to us, because you matter in this world.

We don't have to sit with you to know that if you're struggling, you deserve the support and care to get to a space and place where you can heal and get healthier.

If you need support know that you can connect to a crisis responder to get help without judgement by calling Canada Suicide Prevention Service at 1.833.456.4566.

If you are a young person and struggling, please call the Kids Help Phone at 1-800-668-6868.

As folks reach out to us looking for guidance as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation approaches, we share that truth matters first and foremost, as that listening and learning allows for individual actions to take place. As these increase it naturally puts pressure on systems to shift, change and correct, strengthened by the voices of Canadians standing alongside Indigenous Peoples calling for change. This moment below matters, and we are so pleased for The Mohawks of the Bay Quinte that this piece returned home, and the Creegan family, now has a new narrative of the relationship with the Nation moving forward.
