Civic-Indigenous Placekeeping and Partnership Building Toolkit: An Overview
- Date Updated: June 2021
The history and future of cities in Canada are interwoven with Indigenous peoples and their lands, rights, systems, identities and futures. In this era of truth and reconciliation and reimagining cities of the future in ways that are more inclusive, interconnected, humane and connected to the natural systems that sustain them – it is time for municipalities and civic leaders to honour their commitments to urban Indigenous peoples. This includes investing in and supporting the restoration of urban Indigenous land rights and food sovereignty; and co-creating civic spaces that reflect the stories, contributions and self-determined aspirations of Indigenous peoples.
