Reconciliation in Saskatchewan is each citizen of the province taking personal responsibility to do what they can to create an interdependent and fair society where:

  • Indigenous cultures, languages, ways of knowing and governance structures are strong and sovereign, while also included in and contributing to the overall fabric of Saskatchewan life;

  • We share a common understanding of Saskatchewan’s history, and our personal place within it;

  • Justice for past wrongs has been achieved, and families and communities are strong and healing;

  • Safe spaces exist and skills are developed for mutual learning, communication across cultures, trust building, partnerships, and shared social experiences;

  • We all enjoy a high quality of life, and full participation in the economy;

  • Governance at all levels, including institutions of education, health, justice, economy and social services, represent and benefit from both Indigenous and non-Indigenous leadership, values, history and ways of knowing.
