If there is to be reconciliation, first there must be truth.
~Timothy B Tyson
Perhaps the most critical statement 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 business owner I believe I have an obligation to reconciliation actions as part of my work.
Raising awareness for reconciliation
I have much to learn about the Indigenous cultures that shape Canada's history, 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 the learning journey.
