SFU, Tsleil-Waututh Nation sign agreement to advance reconciliation


Simon Fraser University recently signed a Relationship Protocol Agreement with representatives from sÉ™lilwÉ™taɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation) to advance reconciliation. Under this agreement, the parties will meet at least once a year to review and evaluate their continuing efforts to decolonize, Indigenize, and build an inclusive future. Initiatives carried out under this agreement will include advancing SFU’s Indigenous languages program, developing shared research projects, and increasing the presence of Tsleil-Waututh artwork and signage on campus. “This Agreement with SFU symbolizes a significant shift in our relationship, one that is based on mutual respect, true inclusivity, and collaboration to advance our respective goals together,” said Tsleil-Waututh Nation Chief Jennifer (Jen) Thomas.
