The Formation Committee has developed three training modules for use across Canada, to be used as new member orientation sessions or as updates for existing members.  We think that, ideally, they should be delivered by trainers in group or individual sessions, or they can be viewed individually.  Each module is accompanied by speaker notes and training suggestions in the Notes section of each slide.
