ABORIGINAL CIVIC LITERACY INITIATIVE (ACLI)
ACLI seeks to strengthen the Toronto Aboriginal community’s desire to engage with all levels of government ultimately aiming to increase governmental attention and resources to effectively meet the needs and aspirations of the urban Aboriginal community at large. This includes increased social involvement with private and non-profit organizations, and community activities and initiatives that aim – through direct community level change and influence of government – to promote improved welfare and equity for urban Aboriginal peoples.
ACLI promotes civic literacy by enhancing basic knowledge of the respective roles and responsibilities that are assigned to the municipal, provincial, and federal government. Consequently, resources were developed to raise awareness of the reasons and options for effective civic engagement, including a series of four informational pamphlets, a resource booklet, and a promotional video, which was delivered to the Toronto urban Aboriginal community at four knowledge sharing sessions in March 2014.
