Indigenous Inclusion Thought Leadership Series Webinar
August 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Understanding and Honouring National Truth and Reconciliation Day
Canada’s national day of remembrance was originally proposed by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission as Call to Action #80 which “called upon the federal government, in collaboration with Aboriginal peoples, to establish, as a statutory holiday, a National Day for Truth and Reconciliation to honour Survivors, their families, and communities, and ensure that public commemoration of the history and legacy of residential schools remains a vital component of the reconciliation process.” Across the country employers and people marked the day in different ways which were meaningful, thoughtful, emotional, and poignant.
Our webinar will explore what the Truth and Reconciliation Commission was about, what it learned, and what was originally intended by the 94 calls to action. Six years later Canadians are more knowledgeable about Truth and Reconciliation but many organizations and citizens are still not sure what they should be doing and why it will make a difference. Our webinar will provide an orientation to reconciliation and explain why it’s important for you and your organization.
This webinar will cover three topics.
- Background, history and the meaning of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
- Why Truth and Reconciliation is important to all Canadians and organizations.
- What are practices that you should be following for National Truth and Reconciliation Day?
