The Indigenous Cultural Understanding Framework (ICUF) is a development and delivery plan for training to ensure Children’s Services staff have the knowledge, skills and abilities to deliver culturally appropriate support, services and programs to Indigenous children, youth, families and communities. The ICUF supports government’s response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) Calls to Action and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples calling for more education to public servants on Indigenous history, treaties and residential schools.
