The umbrella organization that represents all of the province's municipal governments is putting the finishing touches on their September program for the 2021 Virtual UBCM convention from September 13 to 17.
And as they do, organizers have been able to secure a "Big Get" for the five days of connection and convention, announcing that Murray Sinclair will be one of the prominent speakers during convention week.
In an update for delegates from last week, UBCM officials announced that the convention would have a significant focus on themes of Truth and Reconciliation.The UBCM plenary session set for Tuesday September 14th will address the urgent question of how Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities might walk further along the path towards truth and reconciliation.
