The 2015 Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action issued a challenge for all Canadians to become aware of Canada's 150‐year dysfunctional relationship with Indigenous peoples, and to act. But what does reconciliation look and feel like for diverse groups of Canadians, and how can we all play a role?

She has served as Chairperson of the Aboriginal Chamber of Commerce, and a member of the City of Winnipeg Mayor’s Indigenous Advisory Circle.
