Canadian Roots Exchange

This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Canadian Roots Exchange

Canadian Roots Exchange (CRE) builds bridges between Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth in Canada by facilitating dialogue and strengthening relationships through leadership programs. CRE trains youth volunteers to promote reconciliation in their communities, hosts a yearly youth reconciliation conference, runs land-based experiential exchange trips to Indigenous communities, and hosts youth-led reconciliation workshops. This year CRE launched a four-part community dialogue series to amplify the histories and realities of Indigenous, newcomer, and racialized youth.
