Decolonizing Initiatives Map

Belonging in Unceded Territory,” a collaborative project between the UBC Centre for Migration Studies, Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House, AMSSA, and ISSofBC aims to understand how residents of Vancouver configure social and place-based connectedness and belonging within a settler colonial context.

As part of this SSHRC-funded project, UBC Centre for Migration Studies Director Antje Ellermann and Frog Hollow Neighbourhood staff member Ancel Zhu connected with local activists and community leaders to compile a public inventory of decolonizing initiatives across Metro Vancouver.

This digital map briefly introduces some of the many local projects that are dedicated to efforts of Truth and Reconciliation, decolonization and/or Indigenization on unceded Coast Salish territories.

The initiatives displayed on the map are not a comprehensive list and our project welcomes requests from other actors who are similarly engaged in decolonizing initiatives in the region. In case your organization is interested in being featured on this map, please contact
