Treaties Recognition Week 2022: November 6-12

"The week beginning on the first Sunday in November in each year is proclaimed as Treaties Recognition Week." - Ontario Bill 207, Treaties Recognition Week Act, 2016.  

Treaties Recognition Week honours the importance of treaties and is intended to promote educational opportunities surrounding treaty rights and relationships. Learning about our collective treaty rights and responsibilities, fosters greater understanding and nurtures relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.

Treaties Recognition Week also represents one of many steps on the path of healing and reconciliation. This legislation was launched in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, specifically Call to Action 10.vii.- Respecting and honouring Treaty relationships.  

To honor our responsibility, the Office of Indigenous Relations will be sharing a variety of educational resources and hosting insightful discussions and teachings.
