Organized by the College’s First Peoples’ Centre and the Canadore Aboriginal Student Association, the groups say the two-day event will include an opportunity for the community to learn about the importance of the reconciliation and healing process from different perspectives from youth leader and Canadore Alumnus Gerry McComb; undergraduate researcher Shanna Peltier; and the Anishinabek Nation’s murdered and missing Indigenous women coordinator, Rebecca Timms.

The Director of Canadore’s First Peoples’ Centre, Mary Wabano says community teach-ins provide a safe place for people to learn about the issues involved with reconciling the past and moving forward together.
