Tiles Decorating Project – A Meaningful Experience for our Children and Youth

Reconciliation Canada aims to create dialogue between Aboriginal People and all Canadians that shares the truth of our shared history.  Through the Tiles Decorating Project, we are able bring the voice of children to our work and remind ourselves that we are committing to a New Way Forward that allows all of our children to reach their full potential. 

Nearly 35,000 tiles have now been submitted by school-aged children across the province!  These tiles will be gifted to the participants of the Walk in order to recognize their commitment towards reconciliation and a New Way Forward.  Do you, or someone you know, run an educational program for children/youth? Inquire now about getting involved with this project – tilesproject@reconciliationcanada.ca.

Be a part of history. 

It’s happening here. 

It’s happening now.

 

For all people in Canada, the benefits of a social movement that bridges generations and cultures for a new way forward are profound and lasting. We’re talking about peace and a shared understanding.

 

This is just the beginning. Let’s create something powerful.
