This description of Jeffrey Cyr's work was prepared when Jeffrey Cyr was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2019.
Introduction
Jeff is structuring a new reconciliation economy to bring full economic citizenship to Indigenous populations that have been historically excluded and controlled by colonial systems in Canada. In doing so, he is putting power in the hands of Indigenous communities for self-determination and supporting Canadian society’s transition into a new era of Truth and Reconciliation.
