Canadian Roots Exchange - Exchanges Unite Us

Canadian Roots Exchange - Exchanges Unite Us

Ever thought that a week long road trip could change our country? We did. Still do, actually.

We are the Canadian Roots Exchange - a week long road trip that takes First Nations, Inuit, Metis and non-Indigenous Canadians around Canada's provinces to visit and learn from our country's Indigenous communities. Together we engage in the teachings, triumphs and daily realities of Inuit, First Nations and Metis communities in Canada. Most importantly, as we travel, eat and live together we work to break down stereotypes, open a dialogue, and build honest relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people living on this land.

Please feel free to pass this on to aboriginal and non aboriginal youth ages 18-30 who may be interested. The NWT, Denendeh exchanges will take place June 15-25 and August 14-24.
