The Lay Academy consists of two streams of training:
General Education (open to all), and Lay and Local Leadership.
In the General Education stream, one to two 'live' large group sessions will be offered each year along with specific online courses available to the individual learner.
The large group sessions involve multiple sites from across the four western Canadian Provinces and Territories interacting with a live online presenter, while also enjoying discussion led by a facilitator at their local site.
It all makes for a collaborative teaching and learning experience!
Various topics are being explored for the coming future including Indigenous Relations and Medical Assistance in Dying.
