Lori Ransom, an ordained elder of The Presbyterian Church in Canada (PCC) and member of the Algonquins of Pikwakanagan First Nation in eastern Ontario, has worked in support of Canada’s Indigenous peoples throughout her career. Lori deepened her knowledge of and passion for the work of healing and reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples after being appointed as the first Healing and Reconciliation Program Animator for The Presbyterian Church in Canada and later as Senior Advisor, Church and Interfaith Relations, for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. Having also held a number of leadership positions at the federal government department of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, Lori has developed a breadth of understanding of the issues of importance to Indigenous peoples and the policies which affect Indigenous peoples and communities. Lori resides in downtown Toronto and works as Reconciliation and Indigenous Justice Animator (United Church of Canada) and as Indigenous Peoples Consultant to the World Council of Churches.
Convocation Hall is located at 31 King’s College Circle, Toronto, adjacent to Knox College.
