Vancouver’s journey towards Reconciliation

Our Reconciliation journey formally began in 2013 with the Year of Reconciliation, followed by the Reconciliation Framework (150 KB) passed by City Council in 2014. The City acknowledges that our Reconciliation efforts should have begun earlier, and that there is still much work to do.

Before Reconciliation, there must first be truth. Every settler and newcomer to this territory has a responsibility to learn the truth of the history and ongoing impacts of colonialism and cultural genocide on Indigenous peoples and communities. We encourage everyone to use the resources on these webpages and other public sites to educate yourself and to take actions to advance Reconciliation.
