Rady Faculty Reconciliation Action Plan

Ongomiizwin leads the implementation of the Rady Faculty’s Reconciliation Action Plan, developed in response to the health-related calls to action made by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

The Action Plan addresses themes such as:

  • honouring traditional knowledge and healing practices
  • providing safe learning environments
  • improving support and retention of Indigenous students
  • educating all students and faculty in cultural safety and anti-racism
  • removing barriers to health professional education

The Action Plan was developed through a collaborative 18-month process involving University of Manitoba faculty, staff, students, alumni, community members, Elders and Knowledge Keepers. An Elders and Knowledge Keepers advisory circle retreat was held at Turtle Lodge.
