Today, Canada is increasingly recognizing the presence and contributions of Indigenous peoples, who have lived, occupied and protected this land.
There is a growing appreciation that without some form of renewed relationship, Canada will be significantly hampered in achieving many of its economic, social and environmental goals. It is equally important that the social and economic conditions of Indigenous peoples improve significantly and quickly.
With its proven track record and its commitment to strengthen relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth, Katimavik proposes to make Canadian youth the leaders in active reconciliation for future generations. Katimavik formally adopted a 50-year pledge to demonstrate a commitment to Truth and Reconciliation through our programming.
