An event billed as a “positive movement” to foster better relationships among Indigenous peoples and all Canadians will take place in downtown Vancouver this weekend.
Known as the Walk for Reconciliation, the event organized by the City of Vancouver and Reconciliation Canada as part of its Canada 150+ programming is meant to bring together people of all ages, backgrounds, cultures and faiths as communities and as individuals.
This bold vision calls on everyone of all ages, backgrounds, cultures and faiths to come together as communities and as individuals.
The two-kilometre walk begins at 9:30 am at the intersection of Cambie Street and Georgia Street.
It concludes with a Reconciliation Expo at Strathcona Park at 10:30 am.
“Now is the time to transform and renew relationships among Indigenous peoples and all Canadians,” reads the event description. “The act of walking and sharing our stories joins us in a commitment to create a new way forward for reconciliation.”
Everyone is welcome and people are encouraged to register online in advance of the day.
