Reconciliation is the process of healing relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians, including through Sport. We all have a role to play in the ongoing commitment to Truth and Reconciliation. Special Olympics Saskatchewan encourages all athletes, coaches, volunteers and supporters in the community to work together on the path towards healing. 

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) published 94 "Calls to Action" for all Canadians to come together in an active effort to help repair harm caused by residential schools, and move forward with reconciliation. Specifically, Calls 87-91 in the TRC document relate to sport and reconciliation.
