Imagine A Canada


(The following is provided for information purposes only and is not intended to be an endorsement by the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board.)

Due to significant interest, Imagine a Canada is extending the deadline to March 1, 2019.

The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation’s (NCTR) Imagine A Canada is calling all young people from across the country from kindergarten to grade 12 to lead our nation through Reconciliation. NCTR invites youth to show us how they can be a leader in Reconciliation, to make the future of Canada a more respectful place.  Students can share their vision of what Reconciliation can be in a poem, a song, a painting, a sculpture, a rap, a drawing, an essay, anything!

The NCTR now has an Imagine a Canada teachers guide to help navigate this subject that can be found here. We encourage you to connect with us at We can help with submissions, ideas and resources.

Teaching material on Residential Schools can be difficult, Imagine a Canada can help you through this journey and help your students create a positive future through art. This process takes time, which is why we are extending the deadline for art submissions from January 31 to March 1, 2019.

One young person from each province and territory, whose art represents Reconciliation in Canada, will be invited as Reconciliation Ambassadors to the National Leadership Workshop and Ceremony celebrating Reconciliation.
