At the 2014 Edmonton TRC event, Moderator Gary Peterson made six commitments on behalf of the United Church.  They can be found at www.united-church.ca/aboriginal/schools/trc 

Dr. Marie Wilson, TRC Commissioner, will be a part of the 42nd General Council meeting in Corner Brook, NL, in August.  She and other leaders will bring forward Calls to Action to the GC42 commissioners and to the church as a whole.  Plan to listen to the live stream of this presentation, and take up the challenge to develop a Reconciliation Action Plan for your faith community (www.gc42.ca)
