September 30th, the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, serves as a reminder of the painful legacy of the residential school system. This day is an opportunity for all Canadians to come together to reflect on the truths of our shared history, to honour the survivors, and to take steps towards a more inclusive and equitable future.
We wanted to take a moment to recognize our commitment to reconciliation. ICI Society is proud to acknowledge the invaluable contributions and heritage of our First Nations members. We recognize that reconciliation is an ongoing journey, and it requires the active engagement and support of all Canadians. By acknowledging the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we are reaffirming our commitment to building stronger, more respectful relationships with Indigenous communities.
We encourage all members to take this day as an opportunity to educate themselves about the history and experiences of Indigenous peoples in Canada, to engage in meaningful dialogue, and to consider how we can individually and collectively contribute to the reconciliation process. Together, we can make strides towards a more just and inclusive society.
