This video briefly explores the background of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Calls to Action. Through understanding our origins as a nation founded in Treaty with First Nations, we have an opportunity to repair the broken relationships we've all inherited through the 94 Calls to Action. These video is intended to be an entry point into conversations about reconciliation and an invitation for viewers to reach out to the NCTR for further dialogue and information. For more information please contact the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (www.nctr.ca) and follow the link below to read the TRC's 94 Calls to Action.
