Several years ago the Government of Canada began the Truth & Reconciliation Commission, focusing on many things but certainly highlighting the atrocities of the Residential School System in Canada. The work of the commission is complete, but the work of reconciliation continues. With support from Canada 150--Hamilton 2017, we are hosting this exercise and inviting the community of Ancaster to participate. Learn the history of Indigenous peoples in Canada and consider how you might enter into the Commission's "94 calls to action."
