First Indigenous Engagement Session

Continuing our path of true reconciliation and action in the Town of Devon

Thursday, October 3rd marked an historic and emotional evening for the town, as Devon held its first engagement session with Elders, knowledge keepers and community members from Treaty Six and Eight Nations. This session allowed for invited delegates to discuss with council the town’s current and future engagement initiatives, provide feedback and direction, and to allow council an opportunity to learn more about Indigenous peoples, cultures, Treaty, and the connection to the land.

Feedback from this session will help guide the town on its path of true reconciliation and help determine key focus areas moving forward. A community open house is being scheduled for November 7th for the public to come and learn more about the work the town has been doing. Additional details about the upcoming community open house will be available closer to the event date and will be shared through the Town’s website, social media and newspaper advertising.
