National Reconciliation Gatherings
Each event brought together approximately 100 participants for a full day reconciliation dialogue. The gatherings provided space that allows for individual transformation and renewed relationship building, as well as an opportunity to highlight local leaders in reconciliation to inspire continued community-driven reconciliation action.
National Reconciliation Gatherings have taken place in:
- Vancouver, BC
- Membertou, NS
- Winnipeg, MB
- Saskatoon, SK
- Whitehorse, YT
- Montreal, QC
- Optimum Potential
- Shared Prosperity
- Social and Systemic Change
Reconciliation Canada recognizes these concepts as foundational to reconciliation and are essential in achieving sustainable, resilient communities.
National Reconciliation Gatherings are part of a larger national engagement strategy to build a national narrative on reconciliation and catalyze action. Reconciliation Canada has initiatives planned across the country through 2016- 2017 to engage individuals, groups and organizations in the reconciliation process, including:
Reconciliation in Action: A National Engagement Strategy,
a Canada 150 Signature Project, is funded in part by the Government of Canada
Réconciliation en action : une stratégie d’engagement nationale
est un projet de premier plan de Canada 150. Ce projet est financé en partie par le gouvernement du Canada.
