UCN is committed to enlivening the principles and Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. UCN recognizes that truth must precede reconciliation. Therefore, UCN commits to seeking and sharing the truth of Indigenous people. This truth includes the legacy of Indian Residential Schools, the Sixties’ Scoops, the appropriation of land, the failure to respect treaties and the continuation of colonization. The journey toward reconciliation begins with truths and the work of reconciliation is the responsibility of all UCN faculties, departments, and areas.

Land Acknowledgment
UCN acknowledges that we are on the traditional territories and homelands of many Indigenous peoples, who have existed here since time immemorial. The First Nations in the area that UCN serves entered into treaty relationships with the Crown and the territory has also become home to other Indigenous peoples. We uphold the treaties and collaborate with all Indigenous peoples to share truth, reconciliation and learning.
