About Senator Murray Sinclair
We are incredibly honoured to announce that Senator Murray Sinclair will join us as this year's keynote speaker. Senator (and former Justice) Murray Sinclair was the Chair of the Indian Residential Schools Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). He was the first Indigenous judge appointed in Manitoba, and is a current member of the Canadian Senate.
His talk will come at an opportune time for our province, as we seek to understand how best to implement the TRC’s recommendations.
