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
The time is now to move beyond sorry and to move beyond misunderstandings. Reconciliation Canada offers an opportunity for all Canadians to renew relationships, based on a shared understanding of our histories and our cultures and walk a path together for a shared tomorrow.
Born from the vision of Chief Dr. Robert Joseph, Gwawaenuk Elder, Reconciliation Canada is a charitable project established as a collaboration between the Indian Residential School Survivor’s Society (IRSSS) and Tides Canada Initiatives Society (TCI).
Reconciliation Week Vancouver 2013 was a huge success. The Walk for Reconciliation was named the #2 Top News Maker of the Year by CBC News Vancouver!
