Salon 27 - Truth & Reconciliation in Toronto - October 13. 2016

Toronto has one of the largest Indigenous urban populations in Canada.  What does Truth and Reconciliation mean in our particular urban context?  Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam will moderate a panel discussion with four leaders from Toronto's Indigenous communities to hear their insights about building an inclusive city.

The conversation will focus on moving forward and the need for change including Indigenous placemaking, visibility and representation.

Salon 27 is a unique event to bring together residents of Ward 27 and the broader City to hear new perspectives on emerging issues impacting life in our City.
