Economics of Social Change: Workshop Series – Reconciliation and an Inclusive Economy

January 29, 2020

Faced with growing income inequality and stubbornly high levels of poverty in communities across Canada, reconciliation offers an essential lens for a new economy.

This workshop will consider how Indigenous worldviews intersect with community-based economic development, and the potential for shared understandings to create jobs and build communities.

Learning outcomes:

  • Learn about historical ties and tensions that have affected Indigenous communities’ engagement in the Canadian economy.

  • Reflect on what ethical, active participation in economic reconciliation looks like for all Canadians.

  • Consider actions you can take to make a difference in economic reconciliation.

Facilitated by: Jacquelyn and Hunter Cardinal, Naheyawin

This event is part of a five-part Economics of Social Change workshop series to explore connections between the local economy, community development and social change. Each workshop is facilitated by local practitioners, introduces hands-on tools and features guest speakers who are working on the ground with community economic development and economic justice issues.

Sign up for the whole series (recommended) or individual workshops.
