Recognizing the history of the land we live and work on is part of a broader process that we’re taking towards supporting the calls to action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission between non-Indigenous and Indigenous Peoples in Canada. We support the practices of recognizing and appreciating the land we’re on in order to help:
- Raise awareness of Indigenous presence and land rights in our work and meetings with customers and employees
- Recognize and learn more about the history of colonialism and the detrimental impacts that racist and discriminatory practices have had, and continue to have, on Indigenous Peoples
- Support a work environment that is fair and equitable—where we welcome and respect all people and cultures
We’re grateful to be guests on this inspiring land where we can do creative work and help provide solutions to support our community and international partners. We’re committed to celebrating the talents and contributions of Indigenous people, while we strive to continue learning with workshops and Indigenous-led training to actively reduce racist and colonial practices that continue to impact Indigenous peoples and their land.
We encourage everyone who lives in what is now known as North America to learn about the Peoples who stewarded these lands for millennia.
