Professional Development Course:


TRC & Law Dialogues: History and Legacy of the Residential Schools (TRC LAW 102)

Facilitated by Karen Joseph,
Chief Executive Officer of Reconciliation Canada


As the eldest daughter of Chief Dr. Robert Joseph, Karen can speak first-hand to the impacts of inter-generational trauma and the current realities of the residential school legacy. In the true legacy of Kwakwaka'wakw traditions and culture, Karen holds a lifelong commitment to family and community.

Karen founded Reconciliation Canada in 2012 to uphold a dream held by her father to witness thousands of people walking together for renewed relationships. In September 2013, the Walk for Reconciliation brought 70,000 people to the streets of downtown Vancouver to display a commitment to transforming relationships among Indigenous peoples and all Canadians.

Here is what she plans to lead a conversation on:

  • The TRC: a roadmap of the past, present and future
  • The Indian Act and systematic discrimination
  • Missing  women, child welfare, education and the RCMP –Attawapiskat
  • Daniels decision – the jurisdictional gap
  • Leadership gap – hopes from the Trudeau Liberals
  • Lawyers  – role in building understanding and bridges
  • We are all in this together – we are all one

CPD: 2.0 hours including 1.0 hour in client relations, ethics and professional responsibility.

Seating is limited to 30!
