The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation’s (NCTR) Imagine A Canada is calling all young people from across the country from kindergarten to grade 12 to lead our nation through Reconciliation.

NCTR wants youth to show us how they can be a leader in Reconciliation, to make the future of Canada a more respectful place.  Students can share their vision of what Reconciliation can be in a poem, a song, a painting, a sculpture, a rap, a drawing, an essay, anything!

Understanding Residential School history can be a challenging and difficult topic; learning through art can heal, transform and empower youth to make a difference in Canadian society. The NCTR now has an Imagine a Canada teachers guide to help navigate this subject and it can be found on our website:


One young person from each province and territory will be invited as Reconciliation Ambassadors to the National Leadership Workshop and Ceremony celebrating Reconciliation. Submission Deadline: January 31, 2019

Please help us get the word out by using the attached poster and social graphics!
