Indigenous Women’s Leadership Treaty Forum

February 7, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This is to inform you about an opportunity to attend an Indigenous Women’s Forum, designed to share perspectives on the (traditional) role of women in the modern treaty era and to facilitate discussion for greater understanding and the strengthening of treaty relationships in Ontario.

As part of Ontario’s Treaty Strategy, this forum will be held in Toronto on February 7, 2017 at the Central YMCA, 20 Grosvenor St., Toronto, Ontario.

Working with the Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation, independent facilitators Mary Jamieson and Kathleen Lickers are coordinating Indigenous Knowledge Keepers, community representatives, Indigenous organizations, youth and Elders, to present and voice their perspectives on treaty.

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to info@treatyforum.ca or by telephone to Kathleen Lickers directly at (519) 445-1863.

MIRR will reimburse your travel and accommodation expenses.

Please note:

  • Guests are required to book and pay their own travel and accommodations.
  • Only original meal, travel and hotel receipts will be accepted for reimbursement.
  • Reimbursement will take 30-60 days to process from the date receipts are received by MIRR.
  • No reimbursement of cash or cheques will be processed or available on site.

A website with additional information has been created (www.treatyforum.ca), as well as an email for feedback and comments: info@treatyforum.ca.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to send them to info@treatyforum.ca or call Kathleen directly at (519) 445-1863.

Please note that ideas, opinions and stories shared at the forum will be compiled anonymously for a final report by the independent facilitator. The final report will be shared when completed.

Additionally, we are interested in hearing more about treaty awareness initiatives you know of for inclusion at the event. Please send any details to Kathleen Lickers using info@treatyforum.ca or by calling her directly at (519) 445-1863.

We look forward to working together to strengthen the treaty relationship and raise awareness. The discussions at these forums are integral to the ongoing process of reconciliation, a process to which the province is deeply committed.
