WINNIPEG – A sold out conference at the University of Winnipeg is taking a closer look at steps towards reconciliation.
The Pathways to Reconciliation conference is a 4 day event featuring seminars and guest speakers exploring ways to implement and monitor reconciliation initiatives.
“We need citizens engaged in this work,”said Ry Moran, Director of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, “To listen and support indigenous people in their path of healing and try to make this a more equitable place for all.”
Programs run until Saturday night covering topics such as history, relationships and reconciliation efforts in other countries.
The gathering comes one year after the closing of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
“The TRC has done its work,” says Dean Peachey, coordinator of the Human Rights Program at the University of Winnipeg, “Now it’s up to us to decide what we do with it and go from truth telling to building new relations.”
