Toronto: Feb 29: Aboriginal Issues in Canada and Beyond, Glendon College (10am – 8pm)

Our Struggle: Aboriginal Issues in Canada and Beyond, on February 29 (10am-8pm),

York University, Glendon College, in the Student Lounge (in the Glendon Manor)

2275 Bayview Ave.

                                                                                        
Why are aboriginal people so important to Canada? What exactly are the issues aboriginal peoples face in Canada from THEIR perspective? What is their relationship to Canada? Do negotiations work? What does the future look like through Aboriginal peoples’ eyes?

This full-day event is a great chance for students to ask these questions and learn more about Aboriginal issues!
