In 2008, the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights launched the Circle Alberta Project to build relationships and common ground between Aboriginal Peoples, government, industry and community organizations.
In order to continue sustainable dialogues with stakeholders from all sectors, the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights is pleased to announce Circle Alberta Gathering: 2010.The Gathering will be held on October 21-23, 2010 at the Sawridge Inn and Conference Centre in Edmonton.
