Education for Reconciliation

“Education is what got us here and education is what will get us out.”

Justice Murray Sinclair,
Chair of the Truth and Reconciliation
Commission (TRC)

It’s here – the KAIROS and Legacy of Hope Foundation Education for Reconciliation campaign!

We need you to add your voice to the call for reconciliation through education and to help roll out this campaign across the country!

Education for Reconciliation responds to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action #62. It urges provincial and territorial governments to ensure that students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 learn about Indian Residential Schools, Treaties, and the contributions made by First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to Canada. KAIROS and the Legacy of Hope Foundation have prepared petitions for each province and territory and we need your help to gather signatures. With your help, we can make this happen!

This year’s campaign is the first stage of Winds of Change, a multi-year KAIROS campaign that will focus on living up to the TRC Calls to Action.

You will find background information and everything you need to get involved in Education for Reconciliation at:  www.kairoscanada.org/windsofchange.

This is what we have for you:

  • A campaign toolkit that includes announcements and short talks, and an introductory participatory workshop
  • Petitions and background information specific to your province or territory
  • Links to background information and partner organizations
  • Teach our Children, a two-minute video to introduce the campaign

We are looking forward to working with you to make Education for Reconciliation a success! Please get in touch with Shannon at sneufeldt@kairoscanada.org or Alfredo at abarahona@kairoscanada.org if you have any questions.
