IRCOM has developed a mandatory staff workshop looking at case studies of issues and media coverage relating to Indigenous Peoples along with clips from the CBC’s 8th Fire website.  It has also developed a “Pow Wow Protocol” for staff – which includes a list of Pow Wows happening during the Pow Wow season. It is updated annually.
