Ontario’s HIV sector is having a conversation about our collective work towards Truth and Reconciliation. Since late-2018, the Reconciliation Working Group has worked to provide guidance and tools for the sector (essentially, all OAN members) on how to do ’the work of reconciliation’, including providing tools and to lead the sector through a process of consensus on what that work should look like.

The Reconciliation Working Group is composed of Oahas and six non-Indigenous AIDS service organizations: AIDS Committee of North Bay and Area, Elevate Northwest Ontario, The Gilbert Centre, the Ontario AIDS Network, Pasan, and Réseau Access Network.  Its task has been to help organizations identify how they might begin – and continue – the difficult work of reconciliation with Indigenous people in their communities.

The Working Group is excited to share the results of its work in the coming weeks and invites you to join the Reconciliation in Action Webinar on August 15th from 10:00 am – 11:30 am – to join please visit https://zoom.us/j/357561718
