It will explore some of the key trends and developments in Social Work in Canada.

The potential for positive change in the lives of indigenous and non-indigenous children and youth will be examined in the light of establishment, findings and recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission; Human Rights Tribunal Ruling; and the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls Inquiry.

The presentation will address the prospects and challenges for creating a better Canada for children and youth. The lecture takes place at 6:00pm in room F210 at the university.
