“[Reconciliation] is about coming to terms with events of the past in a manner that overcomes conflict and establishes a respectful and healthy relationship among people going forward.” (Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada)

Section 35(1) of the Constitution Act has long been seen as a basis for reconciliation. The Final Report of the TRC embodies 94 recommendations to address the legacy of residential schools and advance the process of Canadian reconciliation. Since then, our institutions and governments have moved forward with many of the recommendations, including implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which is now part of our law.

Join our panelists – the Honourable Murray Sinclair, the Honourable Michelle O’Bonsawin and CBA Past President Bradley D. Regehr – as we explore the meaning of reconciliation and the role of judges and the courts in the process. Learn about the significance of UNDRIP when legal issues involving Indigenous parties are in your court.
