The NWT Wellness Society will organize a territorial conference on reconciliation next November in Yellowknife.

Lila Erasmus, the Aboriginal component coordinator for the society, says instead of organizing smaller events throughout the year, they will now focus on one major event.

“We’re hoping that the communities will be able to engage on what reconciliation means, and putting together an action plan,” she said.

She says the conference will be a moment to talk about how to implement the 94 calls to action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s report looking into Canada’s residential school system.
