VIU launches Centre for Pre-Confederation Treaties and Reconciliation

March 27, 2014

Vancouver Island University has opened a new Centre for Pre-Confederation Treaties and Reconciliation, which aims to provide leadership and education through advanced research and public dialogue around pre-Confederation Treaties and the challenges of reconciliation. “The critical project of treaty implementation and reconciliation requires a deep and shared understanding of the history of Crown-First Nation relations and a clear and shared view of what is required for reconciliation today in its fullest and proper form,” says the centre’s Interim Director Douglas White. The centre will support advanced research, symposia, publications, and the facilitation of dialogue regarding Pre-Confederation Treaties and reconciliation. VIU News Release
