Truth and Reconciliation

We are committed to a systemic approach to Indigenous Reconciliation within our organization which will aim for transformational change in our own professional development, staffing, our content and writing of educational materials including engagement with educators. We see the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation as a special time to pause, reflect and further this journey. Explore resources with Indigenous perspectives for your classroom here.
