Encounters with Canada

In 2012, Pauktuutit partnered with Encounters with Canada at the Terry Fox Canadian Youth Centre to deliver workshops during a weeklong experiential learning and knowledge exchange forum for Canadian youth. Pauktuutit developed and delivered the workshops with the guidance and some resources of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission as well as the Legacy of Hope Foundation.

The goal of this project was to help Canadians, particularly youth (Inuit, First Nations, Métis, non-Aboriginal, new Canadians and immigrants age 14-17) understand the impacts that the legacy of residential schools has had on Inuit and their communities in order to promote the goal of better understanding of the legacy of the Inuit residential schools experience.
