Reconciliation Regina Launches Community Action Plan
Reconciliation Regina, in partnership with the City of Regina, has released its 2020 – 2021 Community Action Plan. The Plan is based on four significant values – relationships, respect, opportunities and accountability. In each of these values the Plan will track progress to report back to the community and have actions and deliverables that are key to acting on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action.
“The Community Action Plan meets the objectives of the 2016 Council motion that called for actions, that the City of Regina could adopt to support the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission,” said Mayor Michael Fougere. “This ‘made in Regina’ Plan is supported by Indigenous leaders and represents the continuation of our work to ensure reconciliation continues as a living, evolving process.”
The Community Action Plan represents more than two years of community discussions, information sharing and joint activities and initiatives. The Plan demonstrates the support of the community towards reconciliation and the need to move forward to heal and strengthen our community.
“This Plan is the beginning of a journey that celebrates our diverse cultures, strength, resilience, respect and understanding of others,” added Gillis Lavalley, Reconciliation Regina Board Chair. “Although there is still much more work to do, this is a step towards a more inclusive, vibrant community shared equally by all.”
