Each of the ‘4 Seasons of Reconciliation’ units provide the foundational primer Canadians have not yet learned in school. Each unit meet the Truth & Reconciliation 94 Calls to Action and are meant to enhance (not replace) local Indigenous knowledge. Upon completing this foundational learning, in-person connections with First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples and organizations are the natural next step. Online learning can’t replace the importance of being in direct contact with the Indigenous Peoples in your region and beyond. We hope these serve as a building bloc to assist with those connections and deepen the learner’s understanding of the historical and contemporary relationship between Indigenous Peoples and Canada.

Our commitment to truth and reconciliation started over a decade ago with the documentary film, 3rd World Canada and the annual reconciliation trips in the remote fly-in Nation of Kitchenhumaykoosib Inninuwug, Ontario. This resource evolved from the multi-media educational unit created under the guidance and leadership of the Aboriginal Healing Foundation and the Legacy of Hope in 2014.

The learner’s journey unit follow Indigenous principles, and were drawn according to directives from our Indigenous Advisory Circle. Organizations may benefit from our capacity to establish connections between participating organizations and Indigenous communities. Our leading partner in the '4 Seasons of Reconciliation' is the First Nations University of Canada
