WHITEHORSE, YUKON – "Reconciliation is about establishing a mutually respectful relationship and we think, in the long term, that while education is what got us into this situation, we think education is the key to reconciliation.” - Senator Murray Sinclair, chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

That is why it is time for a Canadian university north of 60°.

For many people living in the North, moving south for education or training purposes is not an option. The challenges of leaving family and moving to a large institution in the city limits educational success. This needs to change and the sooner it does, the better it is for Reconciliation in the North. We need a viable, local, post- secondary option to retain our bright and talented young people to build a strong and diverse future in the North. The time to do it is now.
