In the “Spirit of Unity” Campbell Riverites are invited to a relationship building forum.

Focused on how to create awareness, as well as challenge myths and misunderstandings, this event plans to take the first steps in overcoming false barriers in communication.

With a focus on Aboriginal people’s self-determination of political, social, economic and cultural beliefs and values in relation to subjects such as treaty negotiations, self-government, the United Nations Declaration on Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the forum will focus on how we can provide Wealth and Wellness for our communities by working together.

This event is offered with the cooperation and support of the Laich-Kwil-Tach Treaty Society, First Nation Summit, Campbell River Chamber of Commerce, Campbell River Arts Council, North Island College, Ministry of Child and Family Development Aboriginal Outreach.   Representatives from each of the organizations will be in attendance.

The event will be held on May 20 from 1-4 p.m. at the Campbell River Maritime Heritage Center. Admission is free. Snacks and refreshments will be provided.

Seating is limited so contact Campbell River Multicultural & Immigration Association (MISA) at 250-830-0171 or info@crmisa.ca today to RSVP.
