With the start of a new year the Faculty of Law’s Indigenous Initiatives Office (IIO) challenged each student, faculty and staff member to make and keep a reconciliation resolution. A reconciliation resolution is an action that will help the country move towards a better relationship with Indigenous people and the IIO suggest committing to three over the year.
One of the suggested activities includes reading and learning more about Indigenous people in Canada and the resolution process. With that in mind, here are some resources that can help you fulfill that resolution.
