Canada This Week is a curated collection of some of the best stories published by CTV News journalists across the country this week. Here's what's been happening.

Chief Poundmaker's pipe returns home

A saddle and a ceremonial pipe owned by Chief Poundmaker were returned to his descendants at a ceremony in Toronto, after being held by the Royal Ontario Museum for 99 years.

Poundmaker, or Pitikwahanapiwiyin, was key in negotiations that led to Treaty 6, which covers the west-central portions of present-day Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Prized Gretzky items recovered

A large portion of a prized collection of Wayne Gretzky memorabilia has been recovered in Saskatchewan nearly a year after it was reported stolen.

Sask. RCMP said items found in the collection, worth an estimated $100,000,  included 19 autographed jerseys and about 10,000 hockey cards.

Ryan Reynolds helps Terry Fox Foundation

After actor Ryan Reynolds posed for a photo wearing a Terry Fox Run shirt, many went online to ask how they could get their own.

It turns out Reynolds was the one who picked the design, saying he was "happy to be involved."

"I've been taking part in the Terry Fox Run since second grade and can't think of a more enduring and lovely legacy for one person," he wrote.

Barrie woman opens home to 14 refugees

A Ukrainian family of 14 who found refuge in Barrie, Ont., have now found a permanent home.

Cathy Locke took in the couple and their 11 children last summer, and eight months later says she considers them part of her family.

"They're not going anywhere," she says. 

Parks Canada takes aim at wildlife data

Parks Canada says information on wildlife attacks in Canada, published by a sports news and betting website and reported by CTV News Calgary, isn't accurate, saying the outlet "misinterpreted" the data used and presented "exaggerated and false conclusions."
