Get to know UNDRIP

Do your part to support reconciliation by joining us Nov. 3 for Reading Circle for Reconciliation: United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP).

Between 2010 and 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) listened to and documented the experiences of survivors, families, communities and others affected by the Indian Residential School experience. In June 2015, the Commission published their final report, which outlined 94 Calls to Actions for Canadians.

UNDRIP is central to these Calls to Action. The TRC's final report states, “the Declaration provides the necessary principles, norms, and standards for reconciliation to flourish in twenty-first-century Canada."

This Reading Circle is designed to familiarize participants with the UN Declaration. Working in groups, each participant will read several Articles of the Declaration in a virtual “circle” format. There will be time for short pauses for reflection or comment.

Please note that this event is only an introduction to UNDRIP. Additional resources will be provided following the Reading Circle.
