In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada specifically addressed educational reforms in its 94 Calls to Action. Why are these reforms important for all students? How have they been implemented in Ontario classrooms? We will discuss these issues from the perspective of the local Indigenous community and a settler ally in post-secondary education. The discussion will include an example of a community engaged learning course at the University of Toronto Mississauga facilitated by Councillor Veronica King-Jamieson (Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation) and Professor Sherry Fukuzawa.
