Event description: 

Come join Greater Moncton River of Pride as we learn more about Two-Spirit identity and resilience though coming out narratives. 

The Wabanaki Two-Spirit Alliance received an Urban Aboriginal Knowledge Network research grant to conduct a study on the coming out processes of Two Spirits in Atlantic Canada. John R. Sylliboy and Tuma Young, co-principal investigators, interviewed 20 Two Spirits on their coming out process. 

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session. The venue is accessible to those with limited mobility.

Joignez-vous à Rivière de la fierté du Grand Moncton pour une soirée éducative portant sur la bispiritualité et la résilience vécue par ceux et celles qui vivent un coming-out. 

Le Wabanaki Two-Spirit Alliance (W2SA) a reçu une subvention de recherche de la part du Urban Aboriginal Knowledge Network pour qu’il puisse réaliser une étude sur la bispiritualité au Canada atlantique. John R. Sylliboy et Tuma Young, qui mènent l’étude, ont passé en entretien 20 personnes bispirituelles afin de parler de leur coming-out. 

La présentation (en anglais) sera suivie d’un entretien. Les lieux sont accessibles à ceux ayant une mobilité réduite.

Park Planning Session in Fredericton – Odell and Killarney Lake Parks @ Capital Winter Club
Jun 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

  • Public Meetings:
    • June 28, 2017 | 7 – 9 pm | Capital Winter Club, 232 Rookwood Ave, Fredericton, NB

Park Planning

The City of Fredericton is currently undergoing a number of park improvement plans.  The purpose of this process is to create feasible and long term development plans for four of the City’s premier parks.  The overall objective is to improve and maximize the value and usage of these important recreational and cultural parks while being respectful of their unique and sensitive natural environments.  The plans will act as guiding documents toward developing management plans that allow for cooperative planning, design and implementation and stewardship.


Odell Park

Odell Park is one of Fredericton’s most significant parks on Fredericton’s south side.  The park totals 135 hectares of mostly forested land, but also includes a caretakers home, Odell Lodge,  ball field, trails and parking access, picnic areas and passive parkland.  The park is host to a diverse ecosystem of flora and fauna, including one of the few remaining old growth forests in North America.  The Odell Park Improvement Plan must balance these sensitivities with public input from citizens and park users and provide recommendations on appropriate land use activities as the park and its user groups evolve.

Killarney Lake Park

Killarney Lake Park is a 762 hectare park on the City’s north side and is a major recreation asset generally bordered by St Mary’s Street, Canada Street and Two Nations Crossing. The park hosts a mix of active and passive recreation activities and is one of the most heavily used parks in Fredericton due to the lake and beach, the Killarney Lake Park Rotary Centennial Lodge and an expansive four season trail system.  The Killarney Lake Park Improvement Plan will address future uses within the park, balancing the quantity of active and passive use, while considering new investments in trail infrastructure.  Killarney Lake Park Map (Google)
