Signature Event

Walk for Reconciliation

Join tens of thousands of Vancouverites in this second-ever Reconciliation walk. In 2013, over 70,000 people of all Nations, ages, abilities, communities, and faiths walked together. The brainchild of the inspirational Chief Dr. Robert Joseph, O.B.C., the walk was originally conceived as a healing tool among Indigenous peoples and all Canadians, in light of the legacy of Indian residential schools.

As the final Canada150+ event, Reconciliation Canada in partnership with the City of Vancouver, will be hosting the Walk for Reconciliation on September 24th 2017. The Walk for Reconciliation and Expo will be a multi-faceted and memorable one-day event to inspire and build commitment and action towards reconciliation in Canada. Following the Walk, we will be hosting the Reconciliation Expo at Strathcona Park — a multicultural, inclusive and inspiring event featuring musical performances, community booths, educational exhibits, cultural demonstrations, artisans, food trucks and a keynote speech.

As you make your way along the 2km route, you will experience first-hand the healing and transformational power of ‘Namwayut — We Are All One, which will guide our journey of moving forward together.

The Reconciliation Expo will take place from 10:30am to 3pm.
