Public servants are expected to apply their knowledge of reconciliation when writing new policies, delivering services, and interacting with Indigenous Peoples. However, to do this successfully, they must first acknowledge and understand the impacts that 400 years of colonialism and 150 years of federalism have had on Indigenous communities and the inequalities that persist.

This educational event will feature a panel of distinguished authors who will share their bold visions for how Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians can live together fairly and equitably as we work collectively towards reconciliation.

Participants will learn about the negative impacts that past and present federal initiatives continue to have on Indigenous Peoples, and ways to help correct the imbalance of power between Indigenous Peoples and other Canadians.
