In the spirit of Reconciliation, on Saturday, May 26 at 1 p.m., the City of Calgary, alongside Elders, Traditional Knowledge Keepers and youth from Treaty 7 first nations, the Métis Nation Region 3, and the Inuit community, will conducted an official naming ceremony of the Reconciliation Bridge. The event began with a prayer circle and a solemn walk across the bridge, followed by flag songs, drumming, messages from the Indigenous community, and a traditional Round Dance.

The renaming of the Reconciliation Bridge was supported unanimously by City Council following a notice of motion submitted by Mayor Naheed Nenshi and a majority of Councillors. It is one of many acts of reconciliation The City has planned with the Indigenous community in and around Calgary. These acts are outlined in the White Goose Flying report drafted in 2016 to address recommendations made by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
