Who we are
Repairing relationships between Indigenous peoples and non-Indigenous peoples is one of the most important issues facing Canada today. Colonization has produced a systemic inequality that has left Indigenous Peoples much worse off than the rest of Canada in almost every indicator, and continues to deeply impact Indigenous communities today. This is unacceptable in a country like Canada. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission has set out a clear path for Canada to begin to repair the wrongs that have marked Canada’s relationship with Indigenous peoples.
At CRE, we believe that young people are the key to ensuring the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples improves through dialogue, understanding, and relationship building. Our charitable organization empowers youth (ages 13-29) to be changemakers in their community. Over the past decade, CRE has hosted cultural exchange programs, youth leadership development, educational workshops in schools, national gatherings, and published research.
