This episode delves into the profound journey of honouring the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and the importance of continuing the learning journey throughout the year. We explore the deeper meaning behind this important commemoration, shedding light on how it extends beyond a single day on the calendar. Our guests, Tim Fox, VP of Indigenous Relations and Equity Strategy from The Calgary Foundation, Angela Houle, Assistant Principle from the Calgary Catholic School District and Sarena Provost, Indigenous Manager from the YMCA, share inspiring stories and practical insights on how individuals and communities can embrace the spirit of reconciliation year-round, promoting healing, understanding, and meaningful change. Join us as we uncover the transformative power of sustained commitment to truth and reconciliation.

Topics discussed in this episode.

In the spirit of our journey to promote reconciliation, we would like to honour the truth of our shared history and acknowledge Treaty 7 territory and the traditional lands of the Blackfoot Confederacy, that includes the Kainai, Siksika, and Piikani First Nations. We acknowledge the traditional lands of the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda, including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations. We would also like to recognize the Métis people, and the Inuit people who have made their home here in Mohk’insstsis, also known as Calgary.
