With reconciliation being a journey of relationship building, healing and understanding, the City of Port Alberni has committed to doing just that, building collaborative and supportive relationships with local First Nations that foster kindness and inclusion in the community.

To advance reconciliation at a local level, the City of Port Alberni formed a Reconciliation Committee made up of two representatives from Tseshaht, two from Hupač̓asatḥ, one from City Council, and three from the community at large. The mandate of the committee was to “investigate practical actions for the City and the community to help foster reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples.”

The committee met for the first time on November 30, 2017, and has since met 17 times. In that time, the committee developed 27 recommendations for the City's consideration.
