Access to Power: Indigenous Representation in Politics

From 2018 to 2019, the Broadbent Institute convened Indigenous leaders, thinkers and activists in three unique conversations about what power means for Indigenous peoples in the current social and political landscape in Canada. Each conversation took on its own perspective and narrative based on the time, place and people involved, and yet many themes ran through all three: the deep and continuing damage of colonization; the growing disappointment in the lack of effort to make Reconciliation real, and the strength of Indigenous communities that are building power in old and new ways. 

The Institute is pleased to present all three conversations from our 2018 and 2019 Progress Summits in full.

Our Annual Progress Summit brings together thought leaders, movement builders, elected officials and frontline activists to talk about the most pressing issues facing Canadians and how we tool our movements to build a progressive future. Through discussions and workshops, participants share and learn from each-other and our great complement of speakers and facilitators, leaving inspired and excited! Stay tuned to our website and social media channels for updates on future Progress Summits.
