Canadian Roots Exchange

Canadian Roots Exchange

The Canadian Roots Exchange was awarded a grant to support the 5th Annual National Youth Reconciliation Conference, held from March 27th to 29th in Winnipeg, Manitoba. 

The Canadian Roots Exchange was founded in 2009 by a group of youth who believed that to realize reconciliation in Canada, it would need an education and dialogue between youth to foster a wide understanding of Canada's rich indigeneity.

Since 2013, Canadian Roots Exchange’s conferences have united over 600 Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth from all provinces and territories through interactive youth-led dialogues to develop a national network of youth leadership to promote reconciliation between all Canadians. Their mission is to build bridges between Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth in Canada.

The Canadian Roots Exchange believe in a Canada where youth stand in solidarity to promote respect, understanding and reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. It is built on the hope that a new generation of leaders can redefine and strengthen relationships between Canada's peoples.

Amount awarded: $1000
