Board of Trustees Approves Policy 19: Acknowledging Territories of Indigenous Communities within Division Events

Submitted by
HFCRD Administration
At the November 15th Regular Board Meeting, the Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) Board of Trustees passed motions to approve the second and third readings of Policy 19: Acknowledging Territories of Indigenous Communities within Division Events, which was given first reading at the October 18th Regular Board Meeting.

This policy states that the traditional lands of First Nations and Métis people will be acknowledged at the beginning of every public event or public meeting hosted by the division, and was created in response to Call to Action 69 that was included in the report created by the Truth and
Reconciliation Commission of Canada. HFCRD strongly supports the outcomes of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, and is committed to doing its part by including the next generations in the reconciliation process.
