CAHR and our members respect and acknowledge the many ancestral and unceded indigenous territories on which we live, work, and play. We acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past and are committed to improving our relationships with the Indigenous community. We believe that we can contribute to the healing and decolonizing journey we all share together.
We are committed to fostering respect, reconciliation, and mutual understanding with all Indigenous peoples and communities. Within our own organization, we are committed to an ongoing process of self-education to improve our awareness of Indigenous issues and to increase the cultural competence of our staff and board members.
CAHR encourages all our members to honour the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30th whether through personal reflection, education and awareness activities, or by participating in Orange Shirt Day or other events within communities.
