Building a Foundation for Reconciliation 2023


Building a Foundation for Reconciliation: Braiding - Relationships, Community and Trust

With the symbolism of braided sweetgrass, the theme of this session is Braiding: Relationships, Community and Trust.

This third installment of the Building a Foundation for Reconciliation series will continue the conversation of how architecture, engineering, construction, and related industries can honour the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Call to Action 92 through better understanding of Indigenous history, culture, and empathetic design.

This foundational session will help industry professionals gain a deeper understanding of how to braid meaningful actions of reconciliation into their projects, and how they can be better allies to support the self-determination of Indigenous Nations.
