COVID-19 Pandemic and Travel Insurance Coverage – Adapting To The New Reality

The Global Travel Advisory Issued by the federal government has impacted, not only the freedom to travel, but also the availability of travel coverage itself. As the months passed, some travel destinations have reopened, and flights have resumed to some degree. Although the pandemic still poses a very real health risk, there are those among us who nevertheless would like to be able to make that choice to resume their plans to travel.  But what does travel coverage look like today?

Join  us for a look at the travel insurance industry and how travel insurance providers were made to rethink their offers as a result of the continued COVID-19 world-wide pandemic. We will also discuss how the QCC MEDOC® Travel Insurance Plan has adapted to provide full medical coverage again, despite the Travel Advisory still in place, and what this means for you.

Indigenous Canadians. They Couldn't Make Us Disappear

More information

Beginning with Confederation, Canada has systematically attempted to make “the Indian problem” disappear.  Through racist legislation and policies from 1967 Canada has systematically eroded our culture, spirituality, and resources in efforts to make us fit within general Canadian society by “civilizing” us.  Despite their best efforts, they failed although it has resulted in an unsustainable level of incarceration of Indigenous men and women in prisons and continued marginalization of Indigenous people.   

This presentation will examine federal legislation, such as Treaties and the Indian Act, policies that made us “wards of the State”, residential schools and the ’60s Scoop.  It will show that, despite Canada’s best efforts, there has been a slow and growing renaissance of our culture and spirituality.  Many communities and organizations are now using healing approaches to addressing trauma, that has its roots in history, that focus on that revitalized cultural and spiritual practices. 

About the presenter: 

Ed Buller is a member of the Mistawasis First Nation in Saskatchewan.  He is a former Executive Director of both the National Association of Friendship Centres and the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto.  Before his retirement he held various positions within the Federal Department of Public Safety.  Ed is a husband, father, and grandfather as well as a recognized Elder by his community.   As a young boy, his traditional teachers said he would become a story-teller- and he did.
