Sat, Oct 27 – Reconciliation: The Power of Hope & Resilience

I am very excited to host a youth-focused event entitled Reconciliation: The Power of Hope and Resilience. 

The event will feature guest speaker Max FineDay of Canadian Roots Exchange.  I am delighted to have Max join us so he can share his experience as a First Nations leader, who works with both Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth in the journey of reconciliation.

This event will further a conversation that was started at a Markham-Stouffville town hall in April 2018.  At that time, we had Grand Chief Alvin Fiddler join us.  Over 300 people participated, including many educators. The overwhelming feedback was a desire to learn more.

We hope this next discussion will:

  • Educate, as we learn from first-hand experience about the impact of our shared history
  • Inspire, as we hear about what is possible, through positive Indigenous stories and accomplishments
  • Engage, as we join together with others on a topic on national importance

I hope you will be able to join us.  Please RSVP by October 22 to 905.640.1125 or jane.philpott@parl.gc.ca.
