The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada offered 94 Calls to Action as a pathway towards Canada achieving its full potential. So many of these Calls to Action are grounded in education and awareness, putting learning institutions on the frontlines of Reconciliation. This session will consider the tremendous opportunity that has been given to post-secondary institutions to engage with Indigenous peoples, knowledge, and talent, with a particular focus on honouring the profound strengths of the academy, as well as the opportunities to be even stronger.
