City welcomes new partners to the Indigenous Accord

Released: 11:02 a.m.

Winnipeg, MB – This year, over 20 local organizations, businesses, groups, and individuals joined the City in their commitment to the ongoing Journey of Reconciliation in Winnipeg by becoming partners to Winnipeg’s Indigenous Accord, bringing the total number of Accord partners to over 180 since it was unanimously adopted by Council on March 22, 2017.

Rooted in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) 94 Calls to Action, the Accord guides our shared commitment to the Journey of Reconciliation, and is a tool in which all Winnipeggers can come together and explore reconciliation.

“Our city’s Indigenous Accord is an opportunity to share with each other the steps we are taking, as partners, to respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action,” said Mayor Brian Bowman. “I’m pleased with the amount of ongoing support for the Accord from across our community, and I want to thank all those individuals and organizations who are joining us on our Journey of Reconciliation. I always look forward to the gatherings of the Indigenous Accord and I look forward to a time when we can gather once again.”

To show our commitment to, and progress on the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) Calls for Justice, we are now including the Calls for Justice in the Accord commitment and reporting process.

Including the MMIWG Calls for Justice within the Accord framework will provide an opportunity for more organizations to become Accord partners, and provide more opportunities for current Accord partners to further participate in reconciliation.

The City accepts partner applications year-round. To view the Accord and to become a partner, please visit winnipeg.ca/indigenousaccord.
