About the Indigenous Relationship Building Circle

The City of Pickering is committed to advancing reconciliation with diverse Indigenous communities. Reconciliation requires understanding the past, recognizing treaty agreements, building equitable relationships, and restoring Indigenous Peoples' language and culture and communities.

The City established an Indigenous Relationship Building Circle (IRBC) as a network of Indigenous-led community groups, Indigenous residents and allies that strives to honour the contributions, history and culture of First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples in ways that build and foster mutually respectful relations.
