Payhonin Reconciliation St. Albert
Join the City of St. Albert and its partner organizations as we continue the City’s reconciliation process. The City is committed to restoring balance to its relationship with Indigenous peoples. Payhonin Reconciliation St. Albert is the City’s initiative to support the journey towards reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in our community. Reconciliation is an ongoing process. One of the most important aspects recognized was for the City of St. Albert to move through this process in a respectful manner recognizing Indigenous cultural traditions and protocols to enable a positive move forward with Indigenous communities. Based on our initial meetings and informal consultations with Indigenous communities, City of St. Albert Administration learned that the process of how the City engages and who they engage with, as well as the process and protocol, are extremely important. The City is taking a phased approach to reconciliation. The first phase involves information gathering. The second phase focuses on reconciliation action planning. The third phase is when we undertake implementation and evaluation.
We invite you to join our circle and walk together with us on our journey towards reconciliation. Be part of restoring balanced relationships.
