This Road Map is intended to realise the commitments set out in the above noted Steps of the Strategic Plan. In addition to capturing the actions taken to date, it will guide the Law Society going forward in its efforts to increase cultural competency in the delivery of legal services, in response to the TRC’s Call to Action #27.
To account for the overlap that exists between increasing cultural competency and the related but more general objective of supporting and facilitating equity, diversity and inclusion in the legal profession, which is also embedded in the Law Society’s Strategic Plan, this document takes a broad view of cultural competency
The Road Map is intended to be a dynamic or “living” document which will be adjusted and augmented over time.
The The Law Society of Manitoba’s activities in response to the TRC’s Calls to Action should fall within five broad categories: legal education, internal awareness, governance and operations, support for Indigenous members and collaboration and engagement.
