English Abstract

"The conclusion of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and release of its summary report calls Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada towards a new relationship built upon mutuality and respect. The truth will help us reflect more honestly on our shared history. The TRC’s Calls to Action offer opportunities for deep solidarity. The future must include honouring Indigenous rights and building and renewing nation-to-nation relationships. This booklet is designed to help non-Indigenous communities begin on a path of reconciliation with Indigenous peoples. By learning and unlearning. By building relationships. By actively practicing reconciliation. By living out our commitment in worship, in prayer and in just action."
