Truth and Reconciliation for Business
The corporate sector has a big role to play when it comes to reconciliation in Canada. Many organizations are now aware of the social and emotional damage that residential schools caused Indigenous Peoples but are looking for a path forward on how to make tangible and lasting change.
The Legacy Bowes Truth and Reconciliation for Business program can assist organizations in increasing their awareness and knowledge, and gain insights on how they can improve their operations to support the Truth and Reconciliation (TRC) Call to Action #92.
We provide our TRC business awareness program to individuals and businesses across Canada. Designed to be accessible to everyone, our program is open to small groups under 20 and for organization-wide initiatives in any industry.
Don’t hesitate to contact us to learn more about how we can help your team join the path to reconciliation.
What is the TRC Call to Action #92?
In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada released a report that detailed the experiences and impacts of the residential school system and created a historical record of its legacy and consequences. 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.
How Does Action #92 Relate to Businesses?
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.
That’s why we offer our awareness program for businesses in each province.
