Libraries are encouraged to talk about reconciliation

March 7, 2018

Indigenous and non-Indigenous people are still all too often strangers to each other, but a new initiative is supporting libraries across Canada to create a safe space for the two communities to meet, interact and dialogue with each other.

Let’s talk about Reconciliation is a three-year initiative led by the Canadian Commission for UNESCO (CCUNESCO), the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR), the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), the Indigenous Matters Committee of the Canadian Federation of Library Associations (CFLA) and Library and Archives Canada (LAC).

The goal of the series is to encourage Canadians who are not directly involved in the reconciliation process or who are not exposed to Indigenous history and culture to participate in the dialogues. Libraries are encouraged to host a film on Indigenous rights, history or culture and then facilitate a discussion with participants.

Interested libraries are invited to register for the initiative by contacting The series can also be followed on Facebook.
