"Making Things Right"
This year’s workshop theme was “Making Things Right”. We explored the ways in which planning can create positive change in community and be an important part of correcting wrongs, revitalizing culture and language, reconnecting communities, and supporting repatriation, climate change readiness, emergency preparedness and recovery, and health and wellness. First Nation-to-First Nation learning and capacity building are the anchoring principles of the workshop. Facilitators and presenters included experienced planners from a wide range of backgrounds and communities across the province.
