on Our Roles as Treaty Peoples.
2013 marks the 250th anniversary of the Royal Proclamation of 1763 and the 25th anniversary of the Canadian Multiculturalism Act.
Far too many Canadians – including many peoples of colour and First Peoples, are unaware of the Canadian history of colonization of the Indigenous peoples and the exclusion of communities of colour. Our lack of understanding of these parallel histories has stood in the way of fostering positive relationships among First Peoples and peoples of colour, while contributing to the continuing discrimination and marginalization of these communities in Canadian society.
Please join us for a day of dialogue to build solidarity and a common understanding of our communities’ unique and shared histories and our common and parallel struggles for justice – all in order to achieve truth, reconciliation and good relations going forward.
