Reconciling Injustices in a Pluralistic Canada was one of the most comprehensive events ever held in Canada to highlight the knowledge and expertise that stakeholders themselves bring to reconciling injustices. The dialogue's 109 participants worked together to develop principles for the reconciliation of a broad range of historical and contemporary injustices. This event took place as part of the 2014 Jack P. Blaney Award for Dialogue with Chief Robert Joseph.

The Reconciling Injustices in a Pluralistic Canada discussion guide provides an ongoing reference about Canada’s response to historical and contemporary injustices. The guide introduces the intentions of reconciliation, explains why the topic of reconciling injustice is important to Canada, presents six selected case studies and outlines key concepts and questions for further discussion. This event took place as part of the 2014 Jack P. Blaney Award for Dialogue with Chief Robert Joseph.

The SFU Reconciliation Workshop created space for the campus community to discuss the role of SFU in supporting reconciliation among Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples. The Dialogue Report contains a record of participant ideas to build upon SFU's formal commitment to “honour the history, culture, and presence of Aboriginal peoples.” This event took place as part of the 2014 Jack P. Blaney Award for Dialogue with Chief Robert Joseph.
