The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada issued its final report into the history and legacy of Canada’s residential school system in 2015. Since this time, all levels of government, the corporate sector, and other agencies and associations have begun work to respond to the 94 Calls To Action outlined in the report, including establishing the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30th.
Conservation Authorities across Ontario have been working to find ways to build and enhance relationships with Indigenous Communities to identify shared interests and deliver projects and programs within their watershed jurisdiction. In this webinar, we will explore approaches taken by four CAs to engage with Indigenous Communities, build respectful and reciprocal relationships, and work together to deliver programs and services to protect, restore and manage natural resources in their watersheds.
This webinar is open to all Conservation Authority staff as an opportunity to hear examples of reconciliation in action within watersheds across the Province. Please distribute this invitation to all of your departments and staff.
