CBRC’s path toward Truth and Reconciliation has included a series of commitments and actions, starting in 2016 with an intentional approach to creating space at the Summit for Two-Spirit and Indigenous queer and trans people. The organization continues its journey at the 2022 Summit as we kicked off the conference with a two-day Two-Spirit Symposium (Oct 25-26) to prioritize and give back the space to Two-Spirit, queer and trans Indigneous community members. As we move forward into this year's Summit we believe it is essential to follow Indigneous protocols on the lands of which we will be learning and ensure that we open in a respectful way.
