The Truth and Reconciliation 94 Calls to Action were published in 2012. 10 years later, how far has Canada come in completing any of these items? So far, only 13 have been completed and 19 haven’t been addressed at all. CBC has created an interactive website for you to explore this topic. Visit their Beyond 94 website HERE to discover which calls to action are completed, in progress or not yet started. As citizens, we play an important part in encouraging our government officials to complete the calls to action in a timely manner.
