Winnipeg’s Indigenous Accord
Take the #2PartnerChallenge!
At the 4th Annual All Partner Gathering in November, Mayor Bowman challenged Winnipeg’s Indigenous Accord Partners to recruit 2 new Partners each before the June 2020 Signing Ceremony. Accord Partners have a shared commitment to reconciliation that is rooted in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) 94 Calls to Action, and provide each other with support in their reconciliation journeys.

What is the Accord?
Winnipeg’s Indigenous Accord is a tool in which Indigenous and non-Indigenous Winnipeggers can come together and explore reconciliation. The Accord was unanimously adopted by City Council on March 22, 2017, marking an important step forward in the City of Winnipeg’s Journey of Reconciliation.
The City of Winnipeg continues to explore and learn more about reconciliation. As an organization, we have committed to learning, growing and doing things differently. One of our key actions in supporting reconciliation was creating the Accord, so that organizations and individuals can come together while learning and sharing in reconciliation. This has become our mission while we develop and grow together as a City.
The Mayor’s Indigenous Advisory Circle, in consultation and collaboration with numerous community leaders and organizations, developed the Indigenous Accord document:
We invite you to become a partner to Winnipeg’s Indigenous Accord and share your organization’s Journey of Reconciliation with others.
