September 30th marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. It acknowledges the history of the residential schools in Canada and the ways in which that legacy has profoundly affected, and continues to affect, generations of Indigenous, Métis, and Inuit people across our country.
The Emmanuel Health family acknowledges that our organizations are located on Treaty territories and homeland of the Métis.
In honour of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we invite you to pause as you are able for a moment of silence.
May today and all the days to come:
We reach out and offer compassion to those who are suffering or in distress,
We honour all those we encounter through our words and our actions,
We join our collective wisdom to find fair and lasting solutions,
We build life giving relationships based on respect and dignity,
We create community that celebrates each individual while striving for the common good of all,
