The Canadian Indigenous Peoples Reconciliation Committee (IPRC) is a new committee for CAHSMUN 2018. With the increasing relevance of issues surrounding First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities in Canada, delegates will represent a wide variety of stakeholders who are able to take a multifaceted approach in determining the future of Canada’s relationship with its Indigenous groups. Designed to be a microcosm of the Canadian parliament, this committee will approach the systemic problems faced by these groups. 

The main purpose of this committee will be to promote communication and cooperation between the different parties involved and to create sustainable long-term solutions that will push for growth and development of Indigenous communities. Delegates will also work to improve quality of life and encourage reconciliation between the Canadian government and Indigenous groups. 

IPRC is a committee suited for experienced delegates, but is open to delegates of all experience levels wishing to challenge their capacity as delegates. Position papers are strongly recommended for this committee, but are mandatory for delegates to be considered for awards. Please read about CAHSMUN’s Position Paper policy, which can be found under the list of committees on the “Committees” page. 

Questions, inquiries, and position papers for this committee can be emailed to iprc@cahsmun.org


BACKGROUNDERS WILL BE AVAILABLE SHORTLY!

Semeion Wong | Director
Semeion is currently a Grade 11 student attending R.A. McMath Secondary and is ecstatic to serve as the Director for IPRC at CAHSMUN 2018. Since attending her first conference in Grade 10, Semeion has become infatuated with international relations and public speaking. Aside from Model UN conferences, you can probably find her explaining how to pronounce her name or slamming on buzzers at Reach for the Top tournaments. Additionally, you can find her debating on whether she wants to be a lawyer or a surgeon, depending on whether she's watching Suits or Grey's Anatomy at the moment. Semeion wishes for all delegates to have an enjoyable time in her committee.
