National Council for Reconciliation

Call To Action:

53. We call upon the Parliament of Canada, in consultation
and collaboration with Aboriginal peoples, to
enact legislation to establish a National Council for
Reconciliation. The legislation would establish the
council as an independent, national, oversight body
with membership jointly appointed by the Government
of Canada and national Aboriginal organizations, and
consisting of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal members.
Its mandate would include, but not be limited to, the
following:

i. Monitor, evaluate, and report annually to Parliament
and the people of Canada on the Government of
Canada’s post-apology progress on reconciliation
to ensure that government accountability for
reconciling the relationship between Aboriginal
peoples and the Crown is maintained in the coming
years.

ii. Monitor, evaluate, and report to Parliament and the
people of Canada on reconciliation progress across
all levels and sectors of Canadian society, including
the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation
Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action.

iii. Develop and implement a multi-year National
Action Plan for Reconciliation, which includes
research and policy development, public education
programs, and resources.

iv. Promote public dialogue, public/private
partnerships, and public initiatives for
reconciliation.
