Nanadagikenim Grant Recipients

The CTL is proud to announce that nine proposals for the Nanadagikenim - Seek to Know Grant have been approved for funding. The grant was established based on the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC). The TRC identify responsibilities for those at all levels of government, along with those allies who can effect change in specific sectors. In keeping with these responsibilities leaders of Canadian universities committed to a set of principles developed in close consultation with Indigenous communities. Click on "abstract" to read more about the proposals:
