Truth and Reconciliation Initiative


Building Bridges with the Truth and Reconciliation Initiative

Our initiative responds to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, seeking to bridge gaps between Indigenous Peoples and diverse communities in Canada. We advocate for embracing the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a reconciliation cornerstone and aim to enrich newcomer citizenship education with a truthful representation of Indigenous histories, Treaties, and residential schools.

We’re committed to guiding reconciliation through education and rights advocacy, ensuring an inclusive understanding of Canada’s past for all. Our goal is to cultivate a society that acknowledges historical truths and fosters respect and unity among all its people.
