Reconciliation

Commemoration

Call To Action:

79. We call upon the federal government, in collaboration
with Survivors, Aboriginal organizations, and the arts
community, to develop a reconciliation framework for
Canadian heritage and commemoration. This would
include, but not be limited to:

i. Amending the Historic Sites and Monuments Act to
include First Nations, Inuit, and Métis representation
on the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of
Canada and its Secretariat.

ii. Revising the policies, criteria, and practices of the
National Program of Historical Commemoration to
integrate Indigenous history, heritage values, and
memory practices into Canada’s national heritage
and history.

iii. Developing and implementing a national heritage
plan and strategy for commemorating residential
school sites, the history and legacy of residential
schools, and the contributions of Aboriginal peoples
to Canada’s history.
