Abouth the Walk
On Sunday, May 31, 2015 join the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Reconciliation Canada, dignitaries, public leaders and fellow Canadians on a huge Walk for Reconciliation. The walk is designed to transform and renew the very essence of relationships among Aboriginal peoples and all Canadians. As the country marks the conclusion of the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, it is important to create relationships and connections upon which efforts towards reconciliation can continue.
The Walk for Reconciliation in the National Capital Region builds on the successful walk organized in Vancouver as part of Reconciliation Week leading up to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s national event in September 2013. While it may sound simple, the act of gathering and walking and sharing our stories can join us all in a shared commitment to creating a new way forward in our relationships with each other. The future of Canada depends on being able to simply get along, respecting each other for the unique gifts we bring.
