Decolonizing the City: The Future of Indigenous Planning in Vancouver

Doors at 6:00 PM.

Refreshments to start at 6:30 PM.

Discussion starts at 7:00 PM

On September 25, 2019, SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement and the PIBC South Coast Chapter will host a panel that explores the work of Indigenous planners in Vancouver. It will look behind the scenes on what it takes to strengthen relations and create new practices and policies with Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations, and with urban Indigenous communities, from a City of Vancouver context. Panelists will reflect on what reconciliation means for city planning; how Indigenous Planning in Vancouver has changed over time; and, what Indigenous rights means for urban planning today.

The panel will be moderated by Ginger Gosnell-Myers, Decolonization Strategist, Urban Planner, and Researcher.

Panelists include:

· Cha'an Dtut (Rena Soutar), Reconciliation Planner, Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation

· Kamala Todd, Indigenous Arts and Culture Planner, City of Vancouver

· Spencer Lindsay, Indigenous Social Planner, City of Vancouver

Khelsilem (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh-Kwakwa̱ka̱’wakw), Spokesperson and elected councillor, Squamish Nation Council will act as rapporteur.

This event is co-presented by SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement, the Planning Institute of British Columbia, and the Vancouver City Planning Commission.

We are privileged to host this event on the unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
