RISE – Reconciliation in Solidarity Edmonton. We are a group of citizens in the Edmonton region committed to reconciliation in actions and words.

RISE respectfully acknowledges that our work takes place in the territory of Treaty Six – the traditional lands of the Blackfoot, the Cree, the Dene, the Nakota Sioux, and the Saulteaux and later the Métis and settlers and descendants of settlers from all over the world. The banks of the North Saskatchewan River has been a sacred gathering place for tens of thousands of years since time immemorial. Peoples from across Turtle Island have been coming here to share, learn, trade, and celebrate – the same spirit and intent that grounds our work of reconciliation.


RISE is excited to launch our new website! It is filled with information about who we are, what we do, and how you can get involved. Please explore the new site and connect with us on social media.


Thank you to our Supporters

The work of RISE is made possible because of the many sponsors, supporters, and partners we have in the community. Click HERE to learn about all the organizations we work with to make reconciliation happen in our city.
