Relaunching The Federation’s Reconciliation Book Club

The Reconciliation Book Club is re-launching for 2019-2020 with a lineup of six more great books—both fiction and non-fiction. Check out the titles below and then sign up to participate using the form on the Reconciliation Book Club webpage!

No matter where you are in your personal journey, we invite all staff from Federation member organizations to join us. All you have to do is show up and help us create a safe space for learning, asking questions, and being a little uncomfortable. In the words of one Federation member: “the work of reconciliation requires working through discomfort to get to real change.”

Please note: Past participants will need to re-enroll for the 2019-2020 book club.

About the Reconciliation Book Club

The Federation’s Reconciliation Book Club was designed to create an accessible space for staff in member organizations to increase their knowledge of issues related to reconciliation.

Book Club members meet every other month to discuss a new book. Federation staff facilitate the conversation and make available discussion questions, additional readings and resources, as well as information about each author.

The Reconciliation Book Club is another great benefit of membership in The Federation of Community Social Services of BC. The Book Club is open to all staff from Federation member organizations, all staff from organizations that have agreements with The Federation, government colleagues, and participants in The Federation’s Leadership 2020 program.

If you are unsure of your eligibility, please email for information and assistance. And please forward this to any of your staff members who may want to participate.
