Truth and Reconciliation Garden

December 22, 2021

Plans are underway for creating a Truth and Reconciliation Memorial Garden and Outdoor Classroom for place-based learning at the Burnaby campus. The initiative follows a sacred ground-awakening ceremony in early 2020 and is guided by Indigenous knowledge holders. Plans call for creating an Indigenous ethnobotany curriculum and incorporating Indigenous artwork in the garden’s design. Led by the Faculty of Education, the learning space will be open to all students, faculty and staff, as well as local Indigenous communities.
