Reconciliation is a multi-faceted process that develops respectful and just relationships between First Nations, Métis, Inuit and non-Indigenous settlers within Canada.
Ashoka Canada Young Changemakers Advancing Reconciliation program brings together Indigenous and non-Indigenous young leaders in a forum to build understanding, cultural awareness and changemaking skills.
Young leaders will collaborate on innovative ideas and be connected with an Ashoka Fellow or network member in a mutual mentorship program.
We are delighted to welcome Ashoka Canada’s newest advisor, Cynthia Dick, Chief Councillor of Tseshaht First Nation, to lead this initiative.

Reconciliation requires new skills and new ways of seeing our land. Young Changemakers Advancing Reconciliation program provides new perspectives on one of Canada’s oldest relationships. We are excited to embark on this crucial journey with Ashoka.”
Becoming a changemaker is the only secure job going forward. And the first step to becoming a changemaker is to give oneself permission to ignore — politely, of course — all those who say, “Don’t do it.”
