Outcome 21 – Update – Almost there!

Mar 24

UPDATE  |  Fall 2020

We support the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action and will respond by creating a task force to identify priority actions, beginning by offering cultural safety training and opportunities to learn the Anishnaabemowin language to faculty, staff, and students.

The work of this Outcome was established by a collaborative Truth and Reconciliation Task Force (TRTF) and the Laurentian University Indigenous Education Council.

Sponsor: Interim Associate Vice-President, Academic and Indigenous Programs

Lead: Truth and Reconciliation Task Force

Key Highlights

  • The Final report of the TRTF was launched on September 30th, 2020, coinciding with Orange Shirt Day. The ten recommendations of this report align with the Laurentian University Indigenous Education Council Strategic Plan.
  • Key concepts established throughout the consultation process for the TRTF Report included centering Indigenous voices and perspectives, bridge building, and addressing institutional in-congruencies.
  • In summary, recommendations focused on acknowledging the land in a more meaningful way, making the Anishnaabemowin language more prominent, increasing land based learning, creating a space for the Maamwizing Research Institute, knowledge sharing and educating, and connecting goals of the TRTF to hiring practices.

Next Steps

  • Work toward the implementation of the ten recommendations of the final report.
