Title: Calls to Action for Data and Map Professionals
Author: Orlandini, Rosa
Abstract: Truth and Reconciliation for Map and Data Professionals: Our Calls to Action
In December 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission released their final report and the 94 Calls to Action urging all levels of government and Canadian citizens to work together to repair the harm caused by residential schools and move towards reconciliation. The Calls to Action provide data and map experts with the opportunity to build relationships, collaborate, and participate in the reconciliation process and as well as advance the cause of social justice of indigenous peoples in Canada and abroad. This presentation will discuss several Calls to Actions that are of particular relevance to individuals in the map and data services community, specifically the Actions that refer to microdata, aggregate data, and cartographic information about residential schools and the legacy of residential schools on Indigenous people in Canada. This presentation will highlight datasets that require better access, as well as priority data and cartographic resources that need to be rescued. These data and resources are essential so that, the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation can fulfill their mandate, educators can provide enriched curricular materials for students, academic researchers have access to quality data, and Indigenous Canadians can tell their own stories.
