Truth And Reconciliation

reflect and (un)learn

Inspiring Communities acknowledges the ongoing trauma caused by the residential school system and systemic injustices to First Nations, Inuit, Metis Nation children.

Our office will be closed on Monday, October 2, in recognition of the National Truth and Reconciliation Day (September 30). Our intention is to use this day to reflect and learn more about Canada’s painful past.

We invite you to also learn more about it, discuss among your circles, and together, let us do our part in healing our communities.
