OKN’s Indigenous Reconciliation Strategy
Our Kids Network began its Truth and Reconciliation journey in 2019 and is considered a thought leader in this area for the Halton Region.

Reflecting and Honouring the Recommendations on the Local Level
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.
