Perspectives on Reconciliation

August 09, 2019 - August 15, 2019

The inaugural Summer Institute, Perspectives on Reconciliation, aimed to help accelerate reconciliation work throughout the post-secondary sector in Canada and to connect many of the leaders at the forefront of this important journey. The Summer Institute was developed as a partnership of Yukon College, Vancouver Island University and the McConnell Foundation, with support from Universities Canada and Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan).

Dr. Robert Daum of Simon Fraser University’s Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue and Math’ieya Alatini, former chief of the Kluane First Nation, were contracted to co-design and co-facilitate the dialogues. Local Elders opened and closed the sessions, as well as participating actively in each day’s discussions.
