2023 National Day for Truth and Reconciliation A Self-Guided Journey

September 30: National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

The Truth And Reconciliation Calls To Action #92 highlights the need to:

“Provide education for management and staff on the history of Aboriginal peoples, including the history and legacy of residential schools, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Treaties and Aboriginal rights, Indigenous law, and Aboriginal–Crown relations.”

In its second-year offering, we’re pleased to once again invite you to learn about, reflect on and take action towards truth and reconciliation initiatives. Resources, activities and sessions in this year’s learning experience will further your ability to strengthen workplaces by establishing respectful connections and meaningfully embracing Indigenous cultures and teachings. 

Gratitude and Acknowledgments
We would like to gratefully acknowledge the support and expertise of our advisor, Chantal Fraser. She has been instrumental in guiding and shaping this content. Many thanks as well to Elder Cindy Crowe for providing the ceremonial blessings for this learning. We would also like to thank our Community Partners for supporting this initiative. 

Last but not least, thank you for joining us as you pursue your own path to truth and reconciliation.
