Recognizing the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
As an organization, we are focused on learning and understanding how we can become stronger allies and contribute to positive change through diversity and inclusion across Saskatchewan and the communities we serve.
To honour our Indigenous community members, we will be closing our office on September 30 for the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This will allow our employees and founders to take time to reflect and participate in education and community events that recognize the residential school system, and honour its survivors, their families and communities. In an effort to further encourage action for reconciliation, we will be providing the opportunity for every founder and their team members to take the 4 Seasons of Reconciliation course offered by the First Nations University.
We all have a part to play in the truth and reconciliation journey. On September 30, we encourage you to wear Orange Shirt to show your support, and take time to learn and reflect. For more information, visit:
