Legitimacy in Reconciliation: A Path Forward

Indigenous youth had clear ideas on how to find the legitimacy needed for reconciliation at the Public Policy Forum's (PPF) Nov. 29 unconference in Regina. This report highlights their six recommendations. In August 2017, the Centre for Public Impact approached the PPF to be a part of a global project that explores What is legitimacy? How is it achieved and preserved? How does it manifest in different parts of the world? PPF brought together 21 young Indigenous people to discuss if the Government of Canada has the legitimacy to deliver on its commitment to Indigenous Peoples and how it can work to build the trust and transparency required.
