Your Journey: 4 Seasons of Reconciliation
Network Learning Initiative

Our Kids Network (OKN) is committed to Truth and Reconciliation. Through collective impact and extensive partnerships, it is uniquely positioned to reach and collaborate with professionals across Halton Region who work with children, youth, and families.

OKN has implemented a network learning initiative that offers the 4 Seasons of Reconciliation course to the Halton community. This 3-hour self-paced, multi-media course provides a basic, foundational knowledge on Truth and Reconciliation that nearly all Canadians missed during their education and is intended for Indigenous and non-Indigenous learners.

As a Halton-wide network OKN is greatly beneficial in meeting the goals of reflecting the recommendations and honouring the calls to action across agencies and organizations. OKN will help to introduce and create partnerships relevant and meaningful to the Indigenous Reconciliation Plan, and can provide access to research that will inform it.
