The Reconciliation: A Starting Point mobile app is a reference tool for learning about First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples, including key historical events and examples of reconciliation initiatives. Users will learn why reconciliation matters and what public servants need to know and do to advance reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples in Canada.

The content of this app was created and compiled by the Canada School of Public Service, with contributions from Indigenous and non-Indigenous people from across the federal government, and technical expertise from National Defence's Canadian ADL Lab on the app development.
