Finding our Place in Reconciliation

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission has 94 calls to action that all people living in Canada can do to help address the harms, of the past and present, on First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.

As Scouts, understanding these actions is a first step in starting our long-term learning journey about who we are, what’s happening around us, and our responsibility to contribute to reconciliation.
