The 2016 declaration for the Year of Reconciliation is just the first step for the City of Winnipeg’s Journey to Reconciliation. This past year has provided us with the opportunity to offer increased opportunities for education for our staff to learn and understand more in terms of what Reconciliation means.
We have explored what other municipalities are doing and engaged in conversations with various stakeholders, including Indigenous community members, organizations, and other bodies of Government.
We have initiated conversations and discussions with partners to
- learn more about the Calls to Action
- determine how we can best support each Call to Action, and
- explore options to make that happen
A longer term plan is currently being developed that will guide the City of Winnipeg’s Journey to Reconciliation.
