This document embodies an earnest intent to capture the wisdom of the approximately 200 invited leaders who attended Reconciliation: Looking Back, Reaching Forward—Indigenous Peoples and Child Welfare on October 26, 27,
and 28, 2005, in Niagara Falls, Canada. It is intended to serve as a foundation for the development of community-based action plans. We offer this document as the testimony, and commitment, of those who understand that
improving the lived experience for Indigenous children, youth, and families necessarily requires the improvement of the system that serves them.
