ICP students are required to complete a seven-month Indigenous planning practicum in order to graduate. This learning agreement, developed mutually between ICP students Spencer Lindsay and Dakota Brant, and the Seabird Island Band (SIB), serves to guide the practicum in support of SIB’s comprehensive community planning (CCP) process. The learning agreement is based on trust, reliance and commitment to honouring the planning needs of the SIB members as well as the learning needs of the students.   The purpose of this practicum is to provide students with a hands-on planning experience with SIB to support its comprehensive community planning (CCP) process. The intent is to experience an Indigenous planning process to enhance students’ understanding and capacity for Indigenous community planning practice. The practicum is expected to consist of a six month planning relationship between the students and the host First Nation. The Learning Agreement is one assignment component of the ICP practicum and it serves as a guide to managing a respectful and strong relationship between the students and SIB as well as manage expectations.  Background  Seabird Island Band (SIB) is a First Nation of Stō:lo dialect-Halq’emeylum speaking Coast Salish people, with ancestry connected more specifically to the Stō:lo and Thompson peoples. SIB was designated as a reserve in-common in 1879, and as an independent band in 1959 located three kilometers NE of the town of Agassiz, British Columbia. The island is comprised of approximately 1618.7 hectares today (originally surveyed in 1879 as 1825.5 hectares). The English designation of “Seabird Island” is derived from the June 1858 grounding of the transport paddle-wheeler Sea Bird on an island bar in the Fraser River. The traditional name of the region comes from the nearby ancestral village Sq’éwqel, meaning “turn in the river”.   Seabird today is known for its rich, arable lands and as a location within transportation corridors for the region. This community has cultural and ancestral corridors that extend from the island across the rivers and watersheds of the region. The band currently encompasses 200 homes housing 700 residents, a beautiful community centre, daycare, preschool, elementary school, high school, fire hall, health centre, band offices and a community college.           " 3"Purpose The learning agreement defines the expectations for the practicum and sets the basis for the working relationship between the ICP students and SIB. This agreement outlines the goals of the practicum, the terms of our relationship, and the principles that will guide our relationship in terms of supporting the SIB to complete its CCP process and plan.  Planning History Phases 1-3 SIB has completed three phases of CCP process for their community, beginning in December 2008 with Phase One resulting in an issues analysis identifying areas of concern summarized in the preliminary report, “Acknowledging the Past, Celebrating the Present, Envisioning the Future: Preparing for the Seabird Island Comprehensive Community Plan.” This document provides an extensive look into the areas of concern for SIB, examples of action planning for each area, and a 2009 demographic profile of the community.   The second phase of the CCP process resulted in a second report titled “ Seabird Island Comprehensive Community Plan Phase 2 Report” created in May 2011. This report highlighted the CCP work progress since Phase One including community consultation, core area planning, a re-drafted demographic profile and mapping needs assessment.   SIB completed its third process phase in January 2012 with the completion of the Sustainable Community Development Plan report. With a re-naming of the CCP process to a more community-friendly name (Sustainable Community Plan), this report articulates the community’s profile and collective values, outlines shovel-ready projects in the community and other practical project goals. It also outlines goals for the next phases of SCP work including a commitment to 5-year reviews of the community values statement, an annual review of the SCP and also updating of the SCP after SIB’s annual Strategic Planning Session, upon introduction of new projects and services, and when project items are completed. Band Departments are responsible with the development and monitoring of their work plans, and Managers to update their work plan in relation to the SCP. All Managers, leadership, staff and community have access to the published SCP.  SCARP and ICP have been generously invited to support the fourth phase of SIB’s CCP process. Over the course of this practicum Spencer and Dakota will be working with SIB to expand, implement, and monitor the continuity of the SCP based on community consultation and direction from staff and the planning steering committee.  Vision Our vision for the practicum is to establish and maintain a respectful learning relationship between students and SIB. Through effective engagement with the band and community members on an ongoing basis, students have formed a connection to Seabird Island people, land and culture. Our increased understanding of CCP and the way SIB functions strengthens our capacity as emerging Indigenous planners. Our learning partnership has resulted in important and lasting planning contributions in ways that challenge students, while meeting the CCP goals and aspirations of SIB.     " 4" Principles and Values  Through our classes at SCARP and our previous experience working in communities, we have develop a set of principles and values to help guide our work. These principles will help us stay true to our objectives and remain accountable and responsible to the Seabird Island Band staff and membership.  Our learning relationship is based on the following principles and values:   1. Treating each other with respect 2. Maintaining honesty 3. Supporting mutual learning and honouring our combined knowledge  4. Promoting community involvement throughout all stages of the planning process  5. Respecting local cultural and planning protocol/customs  6. Seeking to understand one another 7. Practicing proper research ethics, respecting the privacy and confidentiality of SIB and it’s members, and allowing SIB to retain ownership of all materials produced.   Learning Objectives   We have developed a set of eight clear learning objectives to help us design our work plan in a way that fulfills the diverse needs of SIB, SCARP and ourselves and emerging planners. Our learning objectives are as follows:   1. To develop our skills and understanding of CCP  2. To expand our understanding and confidence to practice Indigenous community planning  3. To facilitate a community-based, participatory planning process based on community needs. 4. To gain deep understanding of effective community-based engagement in the CCP process 5. Engage youth in the planning process, empower youth to participate 6. Increase awareness of SIB planning history and success 7. To develop an understanding of the Stó:lō culture and the traditional beliefs and practices of SIB.  8. To gain a connection with the traditional territory of SIB.           " 5"Scope of Work  We anticipate 5-6 trips to the community.  Based on the work plan (see attached), our practicum is founded on the following five pillars of planning activities:   1. Getting ready to plan: Gathering the appropriate data, knowledge and understanding to begin designing our community consultation and CCP strategy.  • Build Relationships: Meet people and get familiar with SIB and it’s traditional territory • Undertake Planning Inventory: Collect documentation and gather knowledge of SIB planning history • Community Profile: Update the SIB community profile • Complete Data Inventory: Create a strategy for gathering statistics.   2. Community Participation and Communication: Building strategies for community participation and communication to meet the process needs of the CCP.  • Determine CCP Framework: Create preliminary structure of CCP • Participation Strategy: Determine vision, methods and tools to engage SIB community members in CCP process. • Design Communication Strategy: Determine vision, methods, and tools to disseminate information and results to community. • Implement Participation Strategy: Carry out recommendation from engagement strategy.  • Assess Results of Participation Strategy: Review the results of implementation.   3. Planning Analysis • Review CCP Framework: Reassess preliminary CCP framework.  • Analyze Community Findings: Gather and analyze findings from student work.  • Compile results: Update community vision objectives and action priorities.   4. CCP Implementation • Prepare Implementation Strategy: design a strategy to carry out the set of actions to meet the community’s vision and values.   5. Planning documentation • Document and Communicate results of the CCP  • Seek Community Approval: Bring results to the community for feedback before finalization • Deliver Presentations: Share results of practicum with SIB and SCARP at two separate presentations.         " 6" Roles and Responsibilities  The primary roles and responsibilities of the partners and students are as follows:  SIB, Gary Lister is responsible for: • facilitating student trips to the community • scheduling meeting and activities during trips to the community • providing honest and constructive feedback to students on a regular basis • providing the appropriate documents and connections needed for students to understand the context of their work   • providing guidance and orientation to the SIB organization  • communicating regularly and promptly with students • providing process guidance • reviewing draft submissions  Students, Spencer and Dakota are responsible for:  • traveling to the community for scheduled visits • completing planning deliverables in a timely and respectable manner  • airing concerns and seeking guidance from the supervisor • communicating regularly and promptly with the supervisor  SCARP, Jeff Cook, Practicum supervisor is responsible for: • facilitating student trips to the community • providing ample feedback to students • providing guidance and orientation to the world of community planning • communicating regularly and promptly with students • assisting with planning analysis • reviewing draft submissions  Communication We will undertake to maintain strong, respectful and reliable communication in the following ways:  • Students will communicate with Gary via email and phone.  • Both parties will do their best to reply to emails and phone calls within 24 hours.  • Students will check in with Gary on a weekly basis via conference call.   • In the event that Gary is unreachable, the student will contact Jennifer Campbell • If an original deadline does not end up being feasible or extenuating circumstances prevent the deadline from being met, we will identify this as early as we can and adjust timelines as needed.       " 7"  Review and Evaluation  To meet the true spirit of our learning relationship, it is important that we take the time to review our relationship, including the work plan and CCP process on an ongoing basis.   Our review and evaluation process is as follows:  • Students and Gary will check in once a month to evaluate the state of the practicum o Students will document the meeting with a short summary and send it to Gary and Jeff.   • Students and Jeff will check in one a month to evaluate the state of the practicum. o Student will document the meeting with a short summary and send to Jeff.  • Jeff and Gary will check in with each other on an ongoing basis   The overall work plan will be re-evaluated by both parties in the week preceding each community visit.  o If any of the parts of the work plan don’t end being priorities in the end, we can change the work plan at a later date.   Conflict Resolution Students and Gary will work in collaboration to resolve any conflict that may arise. In the event that the conflict cannot be resolved internally the following process will be followed:  1. If there is an issue during the practicum student will first approach Gary resolve it.  2. If an issue cannot be resolve with Gary, student will approach Jeff for assistance. 3. If there is still an issues Jeff and Gary and students will meet.  4. If needed, Chuck McNeil, Band Manager will meet with Gary and Jeff.  Outcomes    By the end of this practicum, we will have gained a strong understanding of the organizational workings of Seabird Island, strong relationships across different departments and entities in the community, and an understanding of local cultural protocol.  We will have gained a deeper understanding of Indigenous community planning by familiarizing ourselves with the Seabird Island story, developing relationships in the community and gaining practical experience working directly with staff, council and community members. This hands-experience, combined with the teachings of our mentors, will allow us to expand our knowledge and build and refine our skills for Indigenous community planning.   We will gain confidence in our practice and learn how to work and communicate well with our partners. We will improve out skills in project management, writing for various audiences, presenting to various audiences, and organizing and facilitating community consultation events.  The final deliverables will contribute towards completing the SIB CCP process and making the plan a set of living documents that are owned and understood by the community.
