The Future of Truth and Reconciliation

Although the Truth and Reconciliation Commission has produced its report,much remains to be done to ensure that all Canadians understand and implement its recommendations. What is the current state of affairs and what can we anticipate moving forward?

As Chief Commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), Senator Sinclair participated in hundreds of hearings across Canada, culminating in the issuance of the TRC’s report in 2015. He has been invited to speak throughout Canada, the United States and internationally. Senator Sinclair served as an adjunct professor of law at the University of Manitoba. He was very active within his profession and his community and has won numerous awards, including the National Aboriginal Achievement Award, the Manitoba Bar Association’s Equality Award (2001) and its Distinguished Service Award (2016). He was appointed to the Senate on April 2, 2016.
