Today, the City joins the Reconciliation Board of Kenora that works towards the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action at the local level.

This is a monumental project which develops partnerships between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous individuals in the Kenora area. This council is intended to be a joint venture between the sovereign nations surrounding Kenora, Metis Nation and the City of Kenora.
Councillor Kirsi Ralko and Adam Smith, Development Services Strategist, will join the Board as Kenora representatives to the Local Youth Council of the Youth Committee of Reconciliation. Further, as part of the partnership, the City will be advertising for 12-14 additional community members interested in participating in the Youth Reconciliation in Kenora Phase 1 process – Setting Context with the intent that the number of Non-Indigenous members would parallel the Indigenous Members.

Mayor Reynard is proud of this project which aligns with our Strategic Plan “Focusing on Our People”, including building and strengthening working relations with our Indigenous Partners, together with a commitment to identify opportunities within the Truth and Reconciliation Commission recommendations that will further strengthen relationships with our Indigenous Partners are fundamental tenants of the City’s strategic plan. “It is an exciting time in the City and reconciliation with our Indigenous partners and especially our youth will continue to be at the forefront of our progression as a community”, states Mayor Reynard.
