#Next150 is challenging Canadians across the country to play a role in Reconciliation by educating themselves and actively seeking opportunities to learn. Look at their list of challenges, sign up, and share on social media as you embark on this journey.
Everyone, at some point in their journey of Reconciliation, needs to read the 94 Calls to Action recommended by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to “redress the legacy of residential schools and advance the process of Canadian reconciliation.” Or connect here to the Truth & Reconciliation Commission Final Report to read other sections and excerpts.
We have included this action in every category and every path on this website as a reminder of how important it is for us to understand the history and path of Reconciliation in our country.
Memes are often photos with captions that are intended to be funny—but we can also use memes to virally disseminate ideas around Reconciliation or more serious issues. Take a look online and try your hand at creating a meme that can promote Reconciliation.
Hashtags are a great way to follow and become involved in online conversations around Reconciliation. Try #myreconciliation; #readtheTRCreport; #reconciliation; and #myreconciliationincludes.
