Walk for Reconciliation

September 24, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

Walk for Reconciliation

Join the 2017 Walk for Reconciliation in Vancouver! The Walk for Reconciliation is a positive movement to build better relationships among Indigenous peoples and all Canadians. This bold vision calls on everyone of all ages, all backgrounds, all cultures and all faiths to come together as communities and as individuals.

Now is the time to transform and renew relationships among Indigenous peoples and all Canadians. The act of walking and sharing our stories joins us in a commitment to create a new way forward for reconciliation.

Join and support the spirit of ‘Namwayut – We are all one.

Together, let’s walk for reconciliation on September 24, 2017
