Faced with growing income inequality and stubbornly high levels of poverty in communities across Canada, reconciliation offers an essential lens for a new economy. This workshop will consider how Indigenous worldviews intersect with community-based economic development, and the potential for shared understandings to create jobs and build communities.
- Learn about historical ties and tensions that have affected Indigenous communities’ engagement in the Canadian economy.
- Reflect on what ethical, active participation in economic reconciliation looks like for all Canadians.
- Consider actions you can take to make a difference in economic reconciliation.
