Career Edge Picton acknowledges that we are on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Huron-Wendat Peoples and acknowledge that there are many Indigenous Peoples who inhabit this territory now. As we talk about the land, we honour the Indigenous ancestors who came before us as well as the individuals in this present day that have protected and preserved and continue to protect and preserve the Natural Environment which sustains us all.
We acknowledge the impact of traumas that have been inflicted on the Indigenous Peoples of our Country including the events of Colonization, Residential Schools, the Sixties Scoop and the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women, Children and Two Spirited which are only a few of the traumatizing events that are continuing to impact people’s lives today.
We commit to fostering an environment in our workspace, our community and in our personal lives of recognizing and honouring the truths by actively participating in Reconciliation and assisting in the restoring of the connections of people with each other and the land.
This acknowledgement is the first step in our journey towards Reconciliation and healing. As we move forward, we are dedicated to continuing our education and building positive relationships with Indigenous Peoples by influencing change to stop perpetuating colonialism through supporting of Indigenous Peoples and sharing the Truths with the greater society.
We understand you cannot have Reconciliation without “Truth” and the “Whole Truth”, we need to go beyond apologies, let’s act.
