Join us for the « Beyond Section 35″ Symposium in Vancouver

Auteurs: Marcia Nickerson

Both the anniversary of Section 35 and the dialogue emerging from Idle No More creates an opportunity to consider the substantial impact the recognition of existing Aboriginal and treaty rights has had on altering both federal/provincial law and policy regarding Indigenous Peoples and Indigenous governance in Canadian society.

The BC Treaty Commission and the New Relationship Trust, working with the Institute on Governance, will host a two-day symposium bringing together Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders to talk about the successes and challenges of making social and economic progress in First Nations communities.

By convening experts, the symposium dialogue is aimed at providing stakeholders with a more holistic view of governance challenges and successes, moving toward what is required to generate the momentum to move beyond litigation and affect change.

The Symposium takes place February 19-20, 2013 at the Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue, 580 West Hastings St. in Vancouver. Registration is $250. Click here fore more information and to register.
