BRIDGING THE GAP – A WALK TOWARDS RECONCILIATION 2019

Join True North Aid in a walk towards reconciliation on the trails of Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area. Reflect upon Canada’s past and present relationship with Indigenous peoples and learn how to take action for a better tomorrow. During the walk, information about Canada’s history with Indigenous peoples will be available with suggestions on how to be a good ally and become part of reconciliation efforts and actions in Canada. Little Cataraqui Creek is offering FREE admission to the park. To participate in the walk, donations are requested to help with True North Aid and Good Ally Project efforts.

Good Ally Project will be hosting a Reconciliation Walk on Sunday, September 29th from 12-4 PM at Little Cataraqui Conservation Area. Your time spent in reflection and quiet discussion with others is as long as you would like to join us for – but the walk itself is either 30 mins – 1 hour in length.

This is a solemn event allowing for personal introspection that brings to light the reality of Canada’s past and current relationship with First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples. It is an event that is designed to be a self-guided tour on one of two marked trails at Little Cat, following Canada’s chronological history of the systemic residential school history through facts, stats and quotes, allowing for one’s heart and mind to be ready to share with others the following day, Monday September 30th, Orange Shirt Day.

This is a free event. Our deepest gratitudes to the CRCA for waiving admission fees. Donations towards True North’s Aid will be accepted.
In addition to the Reconciliation Walk, our intention is to provide smudge for centering one’s self before walking the trails, drumming, and an opportunity to sign a Good Ally Banner, committing to one’s own personal tolerance and growth and relationship building with Indigenous peoples, in a spirit of reconciliation.
Information regarding the good work and many projects True North Aid has committed to across Canada will be available in the Outdoor Center after your walk.
