As of the fall of 2018, CONTINUING THE JOURNEY is under the leadership of Beth Fellinger, whose vision it is to create a Family Friendship Centre with the Indigenous community in St. Thomas Elgin. To learn more about what is happening in the community tap or click HERE.
The original Truth and Reconciliation initiative in St. Thomas, Ontario was part of the larger Province of Ontario project that continues to work with Indigenous partners through their guidance and leadership across the province to address:
- The legacy of residential schools
- Close gaps and remove barriers
- Create a culturally relevant and responsive justice system
- Support Indigenous culture and,
- Reconcile relationships with Indigenous peoples
We need input and leadership from members of the Indigenous community throughout the region. If you would like to be part of what is happening, lead a get-to-together or activity we would love to hear from you. Please tap or click HERE to connect with us.
We will be forever grateful to the Ontario Ministry of Education and the Corporation of the City of St. Thomas who supported the original project in 2017
