Supporting Indigenous Sharing Network (SISN) is driven by the community, for the community to strengthen the voice of Indigenous peoples and the relationships with key stakeholders for two coalition groups, the Lethbridge (LISN) and Calgary Indigenous Sharing Networks (CISN).
Urban Programming for Indigenous Peoples (UPIP) Coalition Community Initiative is funding both Lethbridge and Calgary cities wanting to engage with urban Indigenous communities. UPIP seeks their input to develop, to establish and maintain Indigenous coalitions. These coalitions will share information, discuss current emerging issues, identify local priorities and needs, continue with community planning and promote collaboration at a local level. The Community Engagement & Partnership program(s) lead by Native Counselling Services of Alberta (NCSA) and funded through UPIP is supporting this work.
