The University of Winnipeg Global College
fosters global citizenship and engagement in human rights through interdisciplinary teaching, research, dialogue and action in local and global communities. Global College provides students, faculty, staff, visiting scholars and community leaders with ways to interact on their diverse perspectives about global citizenship, human rights and other issues affecting local and global communities.
One year after the closing of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Global College, along with the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, is hosting Pathways to Reconciliation
, a gathering that will bring a cross-section of Canadians together to explore understandings of reconciliation and ways to implement and monitor reconciliation initiatives.
Parks Canada and Global College are working together to provide a special tour and panel discussion, focussing on Treaty history and relationships at Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site, for the Pathways to Reconciliation
conference participants. Lower Fort Garry is the site where Treaty One, the first of the numbered Treaties, was signed between representatives of the Crown, Anishinaabe and Muskegon Cree peoples of Manitoba in 1871.
