Thank You To Everyone Who Participated In The Capacity Building Phase of the Journey Together St. Thomas-Elgin Truth & Reconciliation Project

We are very disappointed to announce that the Journey Together St. Thomas-Elgin grant application was not successful and we did not receive funding to move forward. Despite this news, the St. Thomas-Elgin community members, organizations, and leaders are deeply committed to continuing to work toward truth and reconciliation. As a community, we will continue creating culturally sensitive Indigenous events, programs, and educational opportunities.

Community members and organizations who have any further questions regarding the Journey Together St. Thomas-Elgin project may contact Jeff Wilson (select our Contact information button for how you may connect with Jeff)

We have completed the grant application to the Ontario Ministry of Education for funding to continue this important project. We are not sure when the project announcements will come but we will post as soon as we know!!!!!!

In August we had our Second Thank-You Draw 


Journey Together St. Thomas-Elgin

All Canadians must now demonstrate the same level of courage and determination, as we commit to an ongoing process of reconciliation. By establishing a new and respectful relationship between theAboriginal and non-Aboriginal Canadians, we will restore what must be restored, repair what must be repaired, and return what must be returned
