THE CANADIAN RACE RELATIONS FOUNDATION, in partnership with the Vancouver School of Theology, is pleased to produce the Spirit of Reconciliation guidebook. This project is a part of the bigger project, Canada Beyond 150: A Promise to our Children that was developed to bring together Canadians from all backgrounds to engage in discussions about the elimination of racism and discrimination. Spirit of Reconciliation is a component of the five initiatives of the project overall. We would like to thank the financial support by the Inter-Action Grant Program from the Department of Canadian Heritage to make this Guidebook possible. We would like to thank the Vancouver School of Theology specifically Rev. Dr. Raymond C. Aldred and Rabbi Dr. Laura Duhan-Kaplan for the research on reconciliation and identifying and coordinating the essay submissions from subject matter experts. They bring forward personal feelings, experiences and beliefs that touch upon many different aspects and perspectives of reconciliation. Seeing the essays come together have been extremely rewarding. We are excited to share this with you and hope the Guidebook will raise the awareness of all Canadians in this topic continuing this important dialogue throughout the spread of readership.
