From Strength to Strength: Setting the Path Towards Conciliation

Carleton University is situated within the unceded traditional territory of the Algonquin people and supports First Nations, Métis and Inuit students from across Canada. We recognize our special responsibility to support the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

When CUSIIC was convened in October 2018, it faced a monumental and significant task: to revitalize Carleton’s Indigenous strategy and re-energize relationships with Indigenous communities in Algonquin territory and across the country. Throughout the 2018-’19 year, more than 600 Indigenous and non-Indigenous people from within the university and the broader Indigenous community participated in more than 40 consultations. This process yielded extensive qualitative data, which formed the basis of Kinàmàgawin, Carleton’s revitalized Indigenous strategy.
