The Gift of Reconciliation
The Gift of Reconciliation is a gift of hope. It is a gift of courage. It is a gift for all of our children.
This holiday giving season, Reconciliation Canada’s friends, supporters and partners have lots to celebrate. Your generosity, knowledge and commitment to reconciliation has made a meaningful impact on engaging Indigenous peoples and all Canadians in values-based reconciliation dialogue and action. With your support, Reconciliation Canada became a registered charity in October 2015.
Canada has reached a pivotal moment in its history and the future is ours to shape and change. Your generous donation through the Gift of Reconciliation will contribute to a Multicultural Survivors’ Gathering – Envisioning a New Canada. This event will bring together multicultural survivors of historical injustices. Participating Elders will inform the programs and initiatives of Reconciliation Canada as we approach Canada’s 150thanniversary.
Help us reach our fundraising goal of $50,000 by January 8th, 2016.
The Gift of Reconciliation Card
This December, you can share the Gift of Reconciliation with your friends, family and loved ones. For each donation you make, Reconciliation Canada will send The Gift of Reconciliation card to a person of your choosing. The card is designed by renowned Kwagiulth artist, Carey Newman, and will include your own custom message.
By sending The Gift of Reconciliation card, you will inspire your loved ones to join us on a new way forward and support the initiatives of Reconciliation Canada.

Reconciliation Canada will provide an artist honorarium to Carey Newman, who will be directing the funds to the Witness Blanket Project.
The Gift of Reconciliation Supports a Multicultural Survivors’ Gathering
In 2012, Elders from Indigenous and other ancient cultures gathered in Vancouver, traditional Coast Salish territory, to explore how Reconciliation, as a way of being, can help our society move forward. In 2016, help us bring together multicultural survivors from across the country to create a vision for reconciliation for the next 150 years.
