Canada has entered into a period of reconciliation. The findings from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) seek to share and address these histories and provide communities with a way forward. The 94 calls to action included in the TRC have informed what is required for our society to engage in reconciliation.
The land that many of us work and live on has a long and complex history of injustice towards Indigenous peoples. Part of the Truth and Reconciliation includes respecting and honouring the treaties and nation-to-nation relationships.
HCDSB in consultation with Indigenous Elders, Knowledge Keepers from Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Six Nations, the Indigenous Education Advisory Council and the HCDSB Indigenous Education Advisor have created a territorial acknowledgement. Watch the video below!
