Who We Are
We are a catalyst for social change in Canada. We are building new relationships among Aboriginal peoples and all Canadians — relationships built on a foundation of openness, dignity, understanding and hope.
To ‘reconcile’ is to weave a stronger and more vibrant social fabric, based on the unique and diverse strengths of Canadians and their communities.
Why We Need You To Get Involved
Reconciliation Canada is building new relationships among Aboriginal peoples and all Canadians – relationships built on a foundation of openness, dignity, understanding and hope. Our focus extends beyond the Indian Residential School experience to those communities who have received official apologies from the government of Canada, including the Jewish, Sikh, Chinese and Japanese peoples. Our initiatives engage people from every part of Canadian society in open and honest conversation about our diverse histories and experiences in order to build resilient and sustainable communities.
Born from the vision of Chief Dr. Robert Joseph, Gwawaenuk Elder, Reconciliation Canada is a charitable nonpartisan, community based initiative which was formed as collaboration between Tides Canada Initiatives (TCI) Society and the Indian Residential School Survivors Society (IRSSS).
