Indigenous Awareness Canada
Sean Hannah is a Métis individual of Anishinaabe/Ojibwe/Chippewa descent.
He earned a degree from the University of Calgary (1997) in English Literature and Psychology.
After meeting with John Manly (then Minister of Industry) and qualifying for a small business loan from the Aboriginal Business Canada program, Mr. Hannah was introduced to Robert Laboucane who was the Executive Director for Alberta of the recently formed Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB).
Since 1998 Robert and Sean have worked together to build meaningful training programs that help improve outcomes for all Canadians.
With a strong background in Adult Learning Theory and courseware creation, Sean began developing Mr. Laboucane’s speaking notes and workshop material into a printable workbook and a series of transparent overheads. A few year later it was upgraded to the latest technology – a PowerPoint presentation on a CD-ROM. When web-based training became more viable, Sean built and programmed a custom Learning Management System and began offering online courses.
In his role as Director of Training, Mr. Hannah continues to lead the development of our training curriculum and online programs. Sean also oversees our digital presence, brand, marketing and website. Sean leads the development of courses and all of our digital programs.
Sean Hannah is driven by a passion to help bring people together and a mission to help all Canadians learn more about each other to further break down barriers of racism, ignorance, and misinformation.
