Truth and Reconciliation Advisory Council

What is the Truth and Reconciliation Advisory Council?

An advisory board of 36 community leaders from the Indigenous community and/or organizations provides strategic oversight and guidance to our efforts advancing reconciliation. They also inform our truth and reconciliation information and programming that we make available internally and externally.

Together the advisory council publishes and frequently updates our free business resource the Truth and Reconciliation Roadmap (TRR).
