Truth and Reconciliation Awareness Program

The corporate sector has a big role to play when it comes to reconciliation in Canada. Make your business and employees better partners with Indigenous communities and organizations through this Truth and Reconciliation Awareness Program.

Why do you need to care about Truth and Reconciliation? 

It is everyone’s responsibility to improve relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.

Since the release of a report by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada in 2015 that detailed the experiences and impacts of the residential school system and created a historical record of its legacy and consequences, many organizations are now well-versed in the social and emotional damage that residential schools caused Indigenous Peoples. This report included 94 Calls to Action that urged all levels of government and sectors to work together to change policies and create a path towards reconciliation.

Call to Action #92 specifically calls on Canada’s corporate sector to actively engage in reconciliation. In order to truly embark on this path, businesses must prioritize both education and action when it comes to reconciliation.

Through the Legacy Bowes Truth and Reconciliation Awareness Program, businesses can learn how to become better partners with Indigenous communities and organizations. This nine-unit program was created in association with an Indigenous development team and will educate businesses and their employees about the history of Indigenous Peoples in Canada, from pre-contact to today. Participants will leave this program with an action plan on how they can make a difference.
