Share your feedback on UM’s Truth and Reconciliation Framework

June 26, 2024

A message from Angie Bruce, Vice-President (Indigenous) and Jeff Leclerc, University Secretary.

NationTalk: UM News – We are excited to share the Truth and Reconciliation Framework: Time for Action – 2024-2029 (PDF). Informed by community consultations and MOMENTUM: Leading Change Together 2024-2029, this draft framework outlines the vision, mission and shared values, which has guided the Reconciliation Advisory Committee in its work. 

Before the Reconciliation Advisory Committee moves forward with presenting a final plan to Senate and the Board of Governors for approval, we invite you to read and share your feedback on this important document. This Framework will guide our shared work over the next five years. We want to ensure that it resonates and that the diversity of voices and perspectives that strengthen our UM community are reflected in the Framework.

Using the Indigenous Senior Leadership Report and Recommendations and the MOMENTUM: Leading Change Together 2024-2029 plan as guides, the Truth and Reconciliation Framework  provides the high-level context to champion a university-wide Reconciliation Implementation Plan in 2025, which will drive UM’s commitment of advancing the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action and integrating Indigenous ways of knowing into what we do.

The draft plan is now available on the UM website and an online form is available to provide your thoughts. The form will be available until Friday, July 12, 2024 at 4 p.m. CST and will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. The Reconciliation Advisory Committee will be presented with your feedback to inform the final framework.

Thank you for the time and energy you have given to help us develop this draft. We look forward to receiving your feedback.

Miigwech. Thank you.

Vice-President (Indigenous)
