About the Program
Youth Navigate the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action (YNTRC) will engage youth 15-25 years of age in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver to examine the Truth and
Reconciliation Calls to Action (TRC) and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of
Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). The objective is to increase understanding of the evolving
identity of Canada with the goal of harmonious diversity and inclusion.
The project will assist youth to examine the TRC Calls to Action through empathy-based
learning approaches, as a means of heightening their awareness and appreciation of the
traditional role of Aboriginal cultures, values and resilience. UNA-Canada sees this project
as a way of increasing understanding of diverse cultures, and prompting Canada’s youth to
become champions of reconciliation and bridge-builders for the future.
The design should reflect the youth-led aspect, as well as the themes of education and
community, and the underlying understanding of Aboriginal history and cultures.
UNA-Canada suggests that interested candidates examine the 94 Truth and Reconciliation
Calls to Action and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples to
help inspire a logo design.
First Nations, Inuit and Métis students and youth are encouraged to submit designs that incorporate traditional and cultural styles into the artwork.
