Reconciliation and the Academy


2015 – Federation announces its commitment to reconciliation

The Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences announces its commitment to contribute to reconciliation between Aboriginal and non- Aboriginal peoples in Canada, and to model reconciliation within the academic community. This announcement comes following a call for action on reconciliation laid out by the Honourable Justice Murray Sinclair, Chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, during his Big Thinking lecture at the 2015 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Ottawa. The Federation embeds this commitment as one of the fundamental pillars of its 2016-2020 Strategic Plan.
