The Government of Saskatchewan's Ministry of Education created a new online resource in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Calls to Action.

The website was designed to support educators in learning and teaching about the legacy of residential schools and Reconciliation. It is called “Supporting Reconciliation in Saskatchewan Schools."

The site was was developed using feedback from Elders, the Office of the Treaty Commissioner and other educational stakeholders and will evolve over time through ongoing collaboration with these partners.

According to a note from the ministry, the purpose of the website is to:

• coordinate existing public resources into one easy-to-use location for teachers;
• promote online and in-person professional development opportunities;
• offer tools and learning resources that will help facilitate truth and reconciliation conversations among school staff, parents and students;
• provide a collaborative platform for educational professionals to engage in province-wide discussions and to work on joint-initiatives that support reconciliation; and,
• highlight Saskatchewan-made resources and projects to inspire others to act.

If you are a teacher check out additional resources on the Office of the Treaty Commissioner website that have been specifically tailored to you, by logging in.
