We acknowledge this event will take place on the unceded Coast Salish Territories of xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh).
On April 6th, we have an opportunity to show the Government that Canadians are behind justice for Indigenous folks. Bill C-262 will ensure that the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is respected in Canadian law. But the timing is urgent – we need to get 262 through the Senate soon. Grab your friends and come show your support!
Join performing artists and indigenous speakers, for this family friendly gathering.

Speakers list coming soon.
Background: The Truth and Reconciliation Commission has called Canada to adopt and implement the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as “the framework for reconciliation” (Call to Action #43). Bill C-262 will ensure that Canada’s laws are in harmony with the Declaration. 262 is in the Senate and it needs to get through committee and to 3rd vote in the next few months or it will not achieve royal assent. We need people to show up on the streets to show broad-based support for the passage of this Bill.
