Government of Ontario

Support Indigenous Reconciliation, TRC based Education Upgrades


Whereas Ontario is situated on the traditional territory of Indigenous peoples, many of whom have been on this land for at least 12,000 years;

Whereas in 2015 the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada released its final report: “Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future” which made 94 recommendations or “Calls to Action” for the Government of Canada;

Whereas reconciliation must be at the centre of all government decision making;

We the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to:

  • Continue reconciliation work in Ontario, by implementing the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission
  • Reinstate the Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation
  • Work with First Nations leaders to sign cooperative, government-to-government accords
  • Support TRC education and community development (e.g.: TRC summer writing sessions)
  • Support Indigenous communities across the province (e.g.:cleaning up Grassy Narrows
