About RISE

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


Founded in 2015 in response to the one year anniversary of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s National Event in Edmonton, RISE was made up of people from all walks of life committed to moving reconciliation forward in our community. We are committed to raising awareness of the lasting impacts of residential school, creating safe spaces for conversations about reconciliation, and offering opportunities to learn more about and engage with Indigenous culture.

As of March 2022, RISE is no longer offering programming and has ceased operations.
