Reconciliation and an Inclusive Economy

Reconciliation and an Inclusive Economy 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.

Learning outcomes:
  • 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.
