The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo is inviting residents to attend the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action Symposium on Wednesday, June 28 from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Shell Place, Hall C.

On November 8, 2016, Regional Council approved the undertaking of an administrative review of the Calls to Action report.

This review identified where the Municipality has the jurisdiction and ability to implement calls to action in our community.

“The next step is engaging with the community,” said Elena Gould, manager of Indigenous Relations. “An open and transparent dialogue around the calls to action will greatly assist the Municipality in developing specific solutions to move us forwards on the path of reconciliation.”

Participants will take part in facilitated discussions on the Calls to Action report, which was published by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada in December 2015.
