About Canadian Roots Exchange Canadian Roots Exchange is a group of Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth who believe that in order to bridge the gap between Canada’s peoples, we need to become educated and aware of the teachings, triumphs, and daily realities of our Indigenous communities.

Together we gather, travel and bring together youth in cities, towns, and traditional territories across Canada in an effort to break down stereotypes, open a dialogue, and build honest relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people living on this land.

The Canadian Roots Exchange is registered charity that provides Indigenous based leadership, learning and reconciliation experiences to every youth that participates in our programs. CRE organizes three main types of activities: exchange programs, workshops and conferences. Central to CRE programming is the need to bring together Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth. Regardless of the activity, we believe that having dialogue is necessary to foster understanding and reconciliation.
