The Four Colours of Reconciliation conference is taking place in North Bay this week at the Grande Event Centre. The two-day conference will take place on Wednesday and Thursday. A welcoming at the North Bay Indian Friendship Centre is happening right now until 2:00pm that’s free of charge and open to everyone.
The city is leading by example on the winding road to reconciliation by bringing people together to share knowledge that can benefit communities all over Canada. The conference brings together people working in and with urban Aboriginal communities to collectively share stories, opportunities and information about training and workshops.
Chair of Reconciliation North Bay, Dr. Mike DeGagné says everyone has a role to play in reconciliation, and that’s why they strived for inclusivity and diversity in the conference. DeGagné says by sharing knowledge and supporting each other, they hope more communities can benefit and thrive.
