At a memorable concert broadcast across our nation on August 20, Canadian legend Gord Downie stood on stage and in front of 11 million of us watching from our homes, cottages and community gatherings, he brought light on the issues facing Indigenous communities in Canada.“It’s going to take us 100 years to figure out what the hell went on up there but it isn’t cool, and everybody knows that. It’s really, really bad. But we’re going to figure it out. You’re going to figure it out,” Mr. Downie said to the crowd.This moment has been reported as a reflection of the need for the Prime Minister to lead the reconciliation movement across Canada. Indeed, we will look to Prime Minister Trudeau to show leadership.

 Katimavik continues to be confident that we have a very comprehensive offer for youth that aligns well with the priorities of the federal government, and with those of many Canadian Youth.  We believe the government will see Katimavik as a good investment for Canada’s future.   A framework to guide the development and implementation of active reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous youth is under development.
