Ways to learn and take action: 

Ask a friend to join you in reading the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's Calls To Action, then meet up to talk about what stood out to each of you / what action you will take in response: https://tinyurl.com/TRC-CallsToAction or https://nctr.ca/

Or if the Calls To Action are very familiar to you, consider doing the same with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (of which Canada is a signatory): https://nctr.ca/education/teaching-resources/united-nations-declaration-on-the-rights-of-indigenous-peoples/
