Renée McGurry Consulting

For the past seven years, she has worked part-time as a support teacher and workshop facilitator for the Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba. Renée is a member of Treaty 2, Pinaymootang Reserve in Northern Manitoba.
In her 35 years as an educator, having retired in 2015, as the Indigenous Education Coordinator for the St. James-Assiniboia School Division. Through professional development, Renée has provided educators with the knowledge, support, and resources needed to weave Indigenous perspectives into classrooms, schools and division-wide programming.
Presently she works as an Indigenous Education Consultant, offering presentations to organizations and school divisions on Cultural Awareness, Trauma, Residential Schools, Treaty Education, Reconciliation and Allyship as a way of helping both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and organizations start that journey from Reconciliation to ReconciliACTION.
Manitoba Developmental Centre Class Action
Following the recent approval of the settlement of the MDC Class Action complaint launched on behalf of all survivors by David Weremy, we have been able to organize a brief overview of the settlement, including the claims process from the lawyers, who worked with David on his case. This half hour session will highlight the key actions that you as service providers should be doing to support survivors you may serve. As well as we will have time for questions and answers.
Please plan to attend between 2-2:30 at the end of our AGM. If you are unable to attend the AGM, but wish to attend this short session you can connect virtually through this link.
In preparation, please review this plain language version of the settlement (I believe you have this right as we shared with members. If not let me know) or go to https://kmlaw.ca/cases/manitoba-development-centre-class-action/ for the original version of the settlement.
