Reconciliation is a shared journey that involves a collective effort. The Truth & Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Final Report identified a fractured relationship between our nations. The act of gathering and sharing our stories has the potential to join us all in a shared commitment to creating a new way forward in Canada.

Bring your lunch and learn about Reconciliation and how we as students, faculty and staff can work together to bridge our Canadian and Indigenous relationship. Help take a stand by demonstrating community support for reconciliation on campus.
