The 4 Seasons of Reconciliation is a multi-media teaching unit that promotes a renewed relationship between Indigenous Peoples and Canadians. This educational initiative, developed for secondary, post-secondary and the workplace, incorporates teacher guides, slideshows, videos, and films along with engaging online portals.

“In September I completed the 4 Seasons training offered to us through the First Nations University. That was - without a doubt - the most compelling, clear, educational program I have ever taken around the topic of Truth and Reconciliation. I was pulled in by every video and every story. I can honestly say, I am able to see things much clearer now. Thank you to my employer, Conexus Credit Union, for providing this learning opportunity! I would recommend this course to anyone seeking knowledge and more understanding.” 4 Seasons of Reconciliation Learner Janelle Lindsey, CEC, PROSCI Manager, Enterprise Communications Conexus Credit Union
