Moving towards Reconciliation in New Brunswick
In 2017, Mi’gmawe’l T’plutaqnn received funding under the Canada 150, which provided various opportunities for Canadians to mark the birth of Confederation in 1867. Thanks to the generous funding by Heritage Canada, MTI was equipped to begin a dialogue on how best to inform and educate citizens on ways in which to implement the Truth and Reconciliation’s Calls To Action in New Brunswick.
The project, entitled, ” Moving towards Reconciliation in New Brunswick” was delivered in three phases:
- Engagement with Chiefs, Councils, and representatives from communities
- Engaging Elders and Indian Residential School survivors to assist in the development of materials for workshops to be held to inform the broader community
- The delivery of workshops held across the province geared to various audiences within the industry, educational institutions, and the justice system
The communications materials developed are available on our website with a final report of activities to be made available in mid-2018.
