KWIC provides resources for students and community members in Peterborough and the Kawarthas to encourage dialogue and to develop an understanding of world issues toward positive social and environmental change.
KWIC offers shared meeting space with a free lending library of alternative print resources on a wide-ranging selection of global-local issues, located on the Symons Campus at Trent University.
KWIC staff, volunteers, and social justice experts are available with materials and skills to support effective local action for positive global impact.
KWIC provides a Community Social Justice Calendar where community members can see what's coming up and where organizations and planners can coordinate activities. We welcome you to add your event here!

National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation Resources
The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) was created as part of the mandate of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) in order to listen to survivors, their families, communities and others affected by the residential school system. It is a space where their experiences and truths can be kept safe and honored and allow for dialogue for future generations. It is a foundation for ongoing learning and research and aims to provide a voice for those affected and educate everyone across the country.
Here are some great resources that are available for you to learn more and see what actions you can take.
