Opportunity

Reconciliation is a priority for the McConnell Foundation. Thanks to the courage of Indian residential school survivors and the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, more people than ever before are reflecting on what Canada will look like when reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples becomes a reality.

By working together to address the legacy of our shared history, Canada will become a more inclusive and resilient country. The Foundation believes that this can be achieved, in part, by creating a reconciliation economy. In a reconciliation economy, wealth and resources are equitably shared and sustainably managed. We will know we have reached a reconciliation economy when there is no longer a socio-economic gap between the wellbeing of Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
