Memorandum of Understanding Signing between the University of Alberta and the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation
Upon the closing of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, a National Centre was established at the University of Manitoba to continue the work of the Commission. The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation has a mandate is “to preserve the memory of Canada’s Residential School system, and its legacy, to broadly educate the public, to engage Survivors and community and to conduct new research.”
The signing of the MOU connects the University of Alberta to this national network of partner initiatives and creates increased accountability for the University Community in responding to the Calls to Action in a meaningful and respectful way, in collaboration with Survivors and broader communities.

Alex Decoteau Run
Each spring, students in Edmonton gather to take part in a 5 kilometer race named in honor of Alexander Wuttunee Decoteau, Canada’s first Aboriginal police officer.
To the children, Decoteau is a role model, an example of what people can accomplish with their lives. And although Decoteau’s life was a short one, almost 100 years after his death he still inspires others with his example.
