Welcome Ry Moran, founding director of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, to UVic Libraries in first of its kind role in Canada as Associate University Librarian - Reconciliation! We are very excited and proud to have you join us this fall!

Ry Moran holds one of three paddles carved by artist Carey Newman and designed by artists from different generations and nations for the 2018 Building Reconciliation forum. This paddle, painted by residential school Survivor Victor Newman, rests at the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation. One remains at the University of Victoria while the other will continue to travel across post-secondary institutions. This paddle is a symbol of the ceremonial bond created between the NCTR, the University of Victoria and the long work of Truth and Reconciliation in the country. Together, the three paddles represent that we are all in this together as we heal the past, present and future.
