On December 9 2014, Equitas was delighted to hold its Toronto cocktail, generously hosted by TD Bank Group with the support of Tim Hortons, with the Right Honourable Paul Martin and the Honourable Justice Frank Iacobucci as we recognized International Human Rights Day by learning how we can build bridges and greater understanding between Indigenous and other Canadians. The Right Honourable Paul Martin discussed his work promoting Aboriginal education and the new Canadians for a New Partnership initiative. Launched in August, Canadians for a New Partnership brings together distinguished Canadians from diverse backgrounds to open space for a new dialogue about the relationship between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples in Canada. It is built on the principle that Indigenous and other Canadians can together build a strong economy and values-based society that will benefit present and future generations. Mr. Martin was introduced by the Hon. Frank Iacobucci, former Supreme Court Justice and Equitas Honourary Board Member. Also in attendance was including Phil Fontaine, former National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations and Equitas Honourary Board Member.
With the support of Tim Hortons.
