2023 marks eight years since the release of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action.
This year also marks the fifth year of authors Eva Jewell and Ian Mosby tracking Canada’s progress on completing the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action. In this edition of their annual Calls to Action Accountability analysis, Jewell and Mosby reflect on the past five years of reconciliatory movements in Canada. What barriers to reconciliation have been witnessed? What has compelled Canada to act? Who has pushed progress on these Calls to Action forward? By framing reconciliation in 2023 against the backdrop of trends seen in the last several years, Jewell and Mosby identify the ongoing issue of inaction on reconciliation and what it means for the future of accountability work.
What trends can be observed in the past 5 years of Canada’s attempts at reconciliation? How many Calls to Action have been completed in 2023 and why is progress so slow?
