The Office of the Treaty Commissioner’s Youth in Service Northern Conference saw youth come together to make new friends and work on Reconciliation.

“My heart is full,” said organized Angie Merasty,

“Amazing wonderful youth filled my heart with their voice, their talent, their intelligence. They participated and they asked many good questions.”

The youth who participated said they were happy with the new friends they made, what they learned about Residential Schools, the Indian Act, the OTC, the Speakers Bureau, etc.

The witty emcee Nick Daigneault kept things flowing and entertaining; motivational speaker James Anderson was a huge hit; and Max Fineday, and his team from Canadian Roots Exchange, were informative and engaging with their sessions.

We are so thankful for everyone who supported the OTC with this event, especially the Elders, who were there the whole time to support these young people and prayed hard for us all.

We were excited to welcome youth and chaperones from the communities of Turnor Lake, La Loche, Pinehouse, North Battleford, Southend, Stanley Mission, Sandy Bay, Pelican Narrows, Deschambault Lake, Cumberland House, Nipawin, Shoal Lake, Beardy's Okemasis, Prince Albert, and Saskatoon!!
