The presentation will be offered in English and interpreted in French.
In recognition of National Truth and Reconciliation Day, BLG invites you to join us on Sept. 20, 2022 for an exclusive interview with the award-winning author of Five Little Indians, Michelle Good.
A Cree writer and a member of the Red Pheasant Cree Nation in Saskatchewan, Michelle worked with Indigenous organizations for 25 years before obtaining her law degree and becoming an advocate for residential school survivors. Michelle’s poems, short stories and essays have been published Canada-wide. Five Little Indians won the HarperCollins/UBC Best New Fiction Prize, the Amazon First Novel Award, the Governor General’s Literary Award and the Rakuten Kobo Emerging Writer Award.
Michelle will be speaking with Nadir André, a partner in our Montréal office and the co-chair of BLG’s Indigenous Peoples Action Committee. Your questions are encouraged—feel free to submit them with your RSVP.
This event is part of BLG’s commitment to reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, which requires us to confront our history and educate ourselves. We are grateful to Michelle for helping us walk further down that path, and we look forward to welcoming our friends and clients on the journey. Please join us!
Please RSVP by September 19, 2022.

QC | Please note, the concept of "recognition" or "accreditation" has been abolished. By doing this, the Barreau is trying to make it easier for lawyers to claim mandatory CLE credits without a formal accreditation process. It is now up to individual lawyers to determine the eligibility of a training activity and to declare the hours in their “Dossier de formation en ligne”.
