Youth Reconciliation Initiative

YRI 2017-2018

YRI is a youth led program that will provide professional training for youth as facilitators to deliver activities, workshops and discussions in various communities across Ontario to further a process of reconciliation and decolonization by  raising awareness about Indigenous histories, cultures and current realities.  Workshops help participants to dispel stereotypes, deepen their knowledge of the history of Canada and Indigenous communities, as well as an understanding of contemporary realities and how to move forward productively together.

We are currently  planning a number of youth led activities in various communities across Canada. If you are interested in having Canadian Roots do a workshop with your youth please contact us. We have designed and delivered workshops that have ranged from a few hours to 2 days.
