March 24, 2017

The University of Ottawa has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation at the University of Manitoba. UOttawa states that by signing the MOU it has committed itself to strengthening Canada’s relationship with Indigenous peoples in three ways: by deepening the understanding of Indigenous knowledge and culture among all students, staff, and faculty members; by increasing the university’s engagement with Indigenous communities; and by exploring innovations in teaching and learning to foster Indigenous student success and increase understanding of Indigenous peoples among all students. “We are thrilled to see the University take up the challenge of the Truth and Reconciliation journey,” said Ry Moran, Director of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation. “We look forward to working closely together to advance Truth and Reconciliation in this country.” UOttawa
