Register for Victoria Reconciliation Dialogue #3: Newcomers to Canada and Reconciliation

You're invited to participate in the Victoria Reconciliation Dialogues, a six-part series of conversations that will enable the community to explore together what Reconciliation could look like on Lekwungen territory. 

Guided by members of Lekwungen Nations and the City Family, Mayor Lisa Helps, members of City Council and special guests, the conversations will seek to build the community’s knowledge and understanding of Reconciliation – what it is, why it is needed, and why community conversations about Reconciliation are important. 

The Victoria Reconciliation Dialogues will provide opportunities for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to come together to share their ideas and stories, and explore how we as a community can make the culture, history and modern reality of local Indigenous Peoples become present and apparent throughout the city, and understood and valued in people’s everyday lives.

Free childminding is available up to two hours. Complimentary refreshments will be served.

To assist us with event planning, please pre-register for this free event.
