In 2015 the Truth and Reconciliation Commission released its final report and calls to action. In 2017 Canada celebrated 150 years as a nation, and these celebrations also caused individuals and communities to reflect on the challenging history of Canada’s relationship with our First Nations people.
One vital way for all of us to engage with the concerns about who we are as a country, and who we would like to be, is by seeking out understanding. Read for Reconciliation is about seeking truth through reading and also through community conversations
Okanagan Regional Library has partnered with University of British Columbia Aboriginal Programs and Services, and UBC Library to create this webspace to enable individuals to engage with the reconciliation process through reading, coursework, facilitated community discussion, and connections to the vital work of other arts and culture organizations.
