Towards Reconciliation Symposium

Event Type: Event

Building on the success of the Institute on Governance’s Beyond Section 35 series, the IOG is launching a new symposium series entitled Towards Reconciliation: the Future of Indigenous Governance this fall in Toronto. This symposium comes at a pivotal period in Canadian history with the approaching twentieth anniversary of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples (RCAP) in 2016, and the 150th anniversary of the British North America Act (now the Constitution Act, 1867) in 2017. Now is the opportune time to build effective relations and devise actionable steps to move forward.

Towards Reconciliation: The Future of Indigenous Governance will bring together stakeholders from Indigenous communities and institutions, practitioners, academia, and the public sector to discuss and reflect on themes such as closing the social and economic gaps, economic empowerment, wealth creation, and nation re-building.
