Truth-telling and Reconciliation
ReconciliACTION Oak Bay is a collaboration of Oak Bay-based organizations deeply committed to building community to community relationships with the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations and to taking concrete action to advance the process of Reconciliation
in order to build a just future together.
We are animated by the spirit of the Sno’uyutth Welcome Pole which was raised on the grounds of Oak Bay High School to “spread good energy” and symbolize the beginning of a new relationship between the Oak Bay community and the Songhees and Esquimalt peoples in whose traditional territory Oak Bay is situated.
We support public engagement and action around Truth-telling and Reconciliation to foster awareness of the importance and potential elements of Reconciliation.
ReconciliACTION Oak Bay was formed in September 2021.
