Government Commitments to Truth and Reconciliation

The Path to Reconciliation Annual Report, 2019

September 26, 2019

The first sections highlight new efforts the Manitoba government undertook between April 1, 2018 and March 31, 2019, while the later sections identify the previously reported and ongoing activities. Each year, the Manitoba government implements and supports a number of initiatives that further reconciliation outside of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action. This report includes highlights of these activities.

The section on Legacies outlines the Manitoba government’s efforts to address the disparities existing between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Manitoba’s social, political and economic systems and institutions. We have collaborated with many different service providers and organizations to address gaps in the areas of child welfare, education, language and culture, and health and justice.

The section on Reconciliation highlights our ongoing work to establish and maintain mutually respectful relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, and to create a more equitable and inclusive society. The Manitoba government, in partnership with many other organizations, have taken action towards reconciliation under many of the themes outlined in the TRC’s calls to action.
