Perspectives on Reconciliation: Lessons from the Post-Secondary Sector
Inspired by the Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and with an intent to make a positive difference for the communities they serve, in August 2019 & 2020, over 180 leaders from Canadian colleges, universities, and institutes convened to advance reconciliation. These convenings arose from a growing recognition that leaders in post-secondary are working hard to keep reconciliation at the fore but their efforts could be strengthened by learning from one another; and that there are new, unrealized opportunities to advance reconciliation.
In this report, we summarize the foundational themes about advancing reconciliation.
Then, we narrow in on specific actions and activities so that the reader can get an overview of what is underway, as well as opportunities for deeper work.
Our hope is that these tangible examples will serve as inspiration, provoke thought, and catalyze new action.
