Relations with Indigenous Peoples
Campion College acknowledges that it is located on Treaty 4 territory and homeland of the Métis. The College recognizes the contributions of First Nations and Métis peoples to our community. Inspired by a commitment to the truth of the findings of Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), and together with the Jesuits of English Canada, we seek to move toward reconciliation by building and deepening relationships with Indigenous and Métis peoples, as outlined in our strategic plan (2015-2018), “A Path Forward: Connecting our Communities”.
In November 2015, the College established an Advisory Circle to prepare a response to the TRC Calls to Action.
In December 2016, the Campion College Advisory Circle on Indigenous Relations finalized its report.
