Continuing the journey towards a reconciled education system

More than 350 leaders from Indigenous communities and post-secondary institutions across Canada gathered at the University of Manitoba on Nov. 8 and 9 for the 3rd Annual Building Reconciliation Forum, which began as a response to the 94 calls to action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

This year’s forum titled The Journey Toward a Reconciled Education System, explored the institutional changes that need to be made in order to engage more effectively with Indigenous communities and become leaders and partners in reconciliation.

Over the course of the two-day event, a number of stories were shared by Residential School Survivors and Elders from across the country.
