What Treaties & Right Relations offer Canadians with Dr. Cynthia Wesley-Esquimaux

Audience: Open to Public

Friday, November 6th, 2020

2:30 pm - 3:30 pm 

Closing Prayer - Elder Gerry Martin

As we conclude Treaty Week we look at the benefits that can accrue to Canadians through supporting a resolution process and building Right Relations with Indigenous peoples. History and research have confirmed the price of ignoring Indigenous and treaty rights across Canada, and we know the cost of doing nothing, resolving nothing, is far too high in human, social and economic terms for everyone.

Cynthia Wesley Equimaux

Dr. Cynthia Wesley-Esquimaux served as Vice Provost for Aboriginal Initiatives at Lakehead University for three years, and effective September 2016 was appointed as the 1st Indigenous Chair for Truth and Reconciliation in Canada and continues to develop pathways forward to reconciliation in Canada.

Cynthia is a Director of the Teach for Canada non-profit which addresses the needs of Indigenous schools in Northern Ontario. She was inducted as a “Honourary Witness” by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, and is the Chair of the Governing Circle for the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation at the University of Manitoba. 

She is a member and resident of the Chippewa of Georgina Island First Nation in Ontario and has dedicated her life to building bridges of understanding between peoples. She sees endless merit in bringing people from diverse cultures, ages, and backgrounds together to engage in practical dialogue and applied research initiatives. She remains deeply committed to public education and active youth engagement from all cultures and backgrounds.

Cynthia co-founded a youth project out of the University of Toronto, the University of Saskatchewan and Lakehead University. Information on the Canadian Roots Exchange (CRE) can be found at: www.canadianroots.ca.

Collectively, we connect our ideas, knowledge, and curiosity to create our realities. Using our creative mind, we focus on what exists, and strive to look at reality from different perspectives. Together we imagine, innovate, and discover ways through our research to improve our lives, and better our world.  Our Creative Mind Lakehead University Our Creative Mind Indigenous Peoples have had a long history of thriving and diverse economies throughout Turtle Island. Today, Indigenous Peoples contribute over $30 billion annually to Canada’s GDP and by 2024 this is expected to rise to $100 billion.
