Indigenous Initiatives

Canada's relationship with Indigenous people has suffered as a result of the Indian Residential School System. The City recognizes it has an important leadership role to play in reconciliation, and that healing and repairing the relationship requires increased understanding of the legacy and the impacts still being felt.

On these pages you'll find more information about how our City is responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action and working to promote reconciliation in our community.
