Reconciliation in Ontario, Opportunities and Next Steps

by | Mar 14, 2011

Reconciliation between Indigenous and non‐Indigenous peoples in Canada is not just about the legacy of residential schools. It is a multi‐faceted process that restores lands, economic self‐sufficiency, and political jurisdiction to First Nations, and develops respectful and just relationships between First Nations and all Canadians.

In February, 2011, First Nations leaders, youth and citizens gathered with non‐Aboriginal business people, civil servants, lawyers, academics, and students at a two‐day symposium in Toronto. Over 140 participants came together to find answers to the critical need for Indigenous and non‐Indigenous peoples to move forward on the question of reconciliation.

This report lists the many ideas, issues, opportunities, next steps and actions identified by event participants.
