Towards Reconciliation: Indigenous and Canadian Perspectives on an Evolving Relationship

Join us for the release of a new Environics Institute report on the views of Canadians and Indigenous Peoples on the state of reconciliation in Canada today. These results and what they mean will be explored by a dynamic panel of leaders who have been key to advancing reconciliation in Vancouver. This latest research from the Environics Institute builds upon the Youth Reconciliation Barometer, released earlier this year, and the ground-breaking Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study (2010).

This free event is organized by the Environics Institute for Survey Research and Simon Fraser University's Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue.

Registration opens at 5:30pm

Reception 6:00-7:00pm (light refreshments, and cash bar)

Dialogue 7:00-9:00pm
