Walk for Reconciliation | Marche de la réconciliation
Organizers of this event are Canada 150+ and Reconciliation Canada.
We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the traditional unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the shared traditional territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), Tsleil-Waututh, and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) First Nations.

Join the 2017 Walk for Reconciliation in Vancouver! The Walk for Reconciliation is a positive movement to build better relationships among Indigenous peoples and all Canadians. This bold vision calls on everyone of all ages, all backgrounds, all cultures and all faiths to come together as communities and as individuals.
This 2km walk ends with the Reconciliation Expo, a gathering at Strathcona Park featuring cultural performances, artisans, food trucks, educational activities and a keynote speech.
Now is the time to transform and renew relationships among Indigenous peoples and all Canadians. The act of walking and sharing our stories joins us in a commitment to create a new way forward for reconciliation.
Everyone is welcome at the Walk for Reconciliation. Join and support the spirit of ‘Namwayut – We are all one.
Together, let’s walk for reconciliation on September 24, 2017!
