Formed in 2012, Lanark County Neighbours for Truth & Reconciliation is a volunteer community group that works to educate non-Indigenous people about the true history of this area. Here on unceded Algonquin Territory we strive to bring Reconciliation alive on a local level and lend our voices to support the struggles of Indigenous people in this region and across the country.

RESOURCES FOR RECONCILIATION was developed by Lanark County Neighbours for Truth & Reconciliation to help other community groups to navigate a pathway towards reconciliation. It includes protocols for engaging with Indigenous elders, historical background, community contacts list and a bibliography of books and other resources which can be used to educate ourselves and our community about the true history of colonialism in Canada.
