Land Acknowledgement

We recognize the land that Queen’s University is situated on as the unceded traditional lands known as Katarokwi of the Anishinaabe. Following a forced relocation, this land has also been home to the Haudenosaunee Peoples. The Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee roots of this area continue to be represented in the Kingston Indigenous community. In this area, there is also a significant Métis community, along with many other First Peoples from other Nations.

About QCIR

The Queen's Conference on Indigenous Reconciliation (QCIR) is a two-day conference focusing on Reconciliation in business and law. This does not mean that our conversations are limited to business and law, and in fact, we make an active effort to ensure we are also hosting conversations on how to practice Reconciliation in everyday life, and in other fields. The goal of our conference is right in the title: Reconciliation. 


The conference is a joint-effort between students from various faculties, most heavily representing the School of Law. Our conference and events are open to all Queen's students and community members. We also make an active effort to ensure that our leadership team is made up of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students with the understanding that Reconciliation must be pursued by both parties. 

Every year, in varying formats, we put together a conference of speakers who are committed to different facets of Reconciliation, including allyship, decolonization, and existing as an Indigenous person in business and law. This year, we're rallying under the title: Innovative Collaboration. Within this theme, we are hoping that our participants will have the opportunity to talk about collaboration and the different ways that we can engage one another in the active pursuit of Reconciliation.

Information on this year's conference will first be made available on our socials, so make sure that you're following us on LinkedIn, Instagram, and Facebook to be the first in the know when big events start happening.
