RECONCILIATION

If there is to be reconciliation, first there must be truth.

Perhaps one of the most critical statements in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's summary report is "Reconciliation is not an Aboriginal problem; it is a Canadian one."

I am a Canadian.

And as a Canadian and a business owner I believe I have an obligation to reconciliation actions, to do my part in ensuring that active conversations about reconciliation continue.

Raising awareness for reconciliation

I have much to learn about reconciliation and the Indigenous peoples that shape Canada's culture and economy. It is with the utmost respect and admiration that I will continue to educate myself on their past and present achievements so that I can help to celebrate these peoples as an integral and powerful part of my community.

I invite you to join me on my learning journey and strike conversation as we collaborate in our work together. Some resources I have found valuable include:

  • SevGen Consulting - an Indigenous-owned consulting firm that provides Indigenous cultural awareness training to municipalities and corporations, as well as many other innovative programs.

  • Indigenous Canada - a high-level introductory and * free online * course through the University of Alberta that explores Indigenous histories and contemporary issues in Canada.
