Evaluating Reconciliation and Treaty Implementation in Saskatchewan: What does success look like, how are we evaluating, and how will we know if change is happening?

Originally recorded Thursday, March 18, 2021. Using its stature as a neutral provincial facilitator, the Office of the Treaty Commissioner is working to support a provincial movement for Truth and Reconciliation through Treaty Implementation. The OTC has been working since 2013 to build from the grass-roots a vision of successful truth, reconciliation and Treaty implementation, and a methodology that measures true progress. The measurement framework we have developed aims to: 1) measure collective impact towards truth, reconciliation and Treaty Implementation in Saskatchewan; 2) to inspire action within Saskatchewan’s peoples, organizations, and system sectors; and 3) to inform reconciliation learning across the province. 

We are looking for researchers and others who would like to collaborate on this work. Hear about the evaluation methods we are developing, our tools for baseline mapping and action planning of Reconciliation efforts in organizations, and our plans to develop a larger research program evaluating Reconciliation and Treaty implementation in Saskatchewan and beyond.  

Speakers: Mary Culbertson, Treaty Commissioner of Saskatchewan and Rhett Sangster, Director, Reconciliation and Community Partnerships, Office of the Treaty Commissioner

Co-hosted by FMHRN, the NEIHR National Coordinating Centre, and the Office of the Treaty Commissioner
