Hosted by Laurentian University, Universities Canada’s annual Building Reconciliation Forum will take place in Sudbury, Ontario, from June 25 to 27, 2024.

In addition to addressing the Forum’s main theme, presenters cover four related subthemes:

  2. Language and culture: Elders and cultural practitioners in the workplace
  3. Cultural diversity: Celebrating differences and building bridges
  4. Shaping the future: Trends and insights in implementing Truth and Reconciliation
