Reflections on Truth and Reconciliation
September 30 is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This annual day of remembrance is a time for reflection, education, and action to recognize the atrocities of the residential school system and address their ongoing impact on survivors, families, and communities.
We encourage our network members to use this time to reflect on what Truth and Reconciliation means to them. This is our shared Canadian history. Reconciliation can take many forms including learning about Canada’s residential schools and listening to the stories of survivors. To guide you in your personal journey, we have compiled a list of resources and supports.
Bringing traditional Indigenous knowledge into health research
The Knowledge Keepers in Research video series is a new resource to support meaningful and reciprocal relationships between researchers and Indigenous communities.
This eight-part series encourages health researchers to honour Indigenous ways of knowing and incorporate them into practice.
