Indigenous Reconciliation (IR)  Portfolio

About IR

We envision a UofT where students understand Canada’s colonial context and its consequences. We want a UofT where students are prepared to work respectfully with Indigenous Peoples in their careers. We strive to promote reconciliation in showcasing the resilience and strength of Indigenous Peoples by engaging in weekly learning discussions and working on our design project with Cat Lake First Nations. This project entails collaborating with the community to address food security issues through initiatives such as community gardens and a greenhouse.
