Truth and Reconciliation
Out of respect for the Indigenous people of Manitoba, we acknowledge that our head office is located on Treaty 1 First Nations Territory, traditional lands of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation. We stand with our Indigenous community and are focused on building a future of reconciliation and collaboration.
Incluzia Inc. recognizes the harms and missteps of the past and is committed to reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples. We commit to building positive, meaningful & respectful relationships with Indigenous communities and will improve our knowledge and awareness surrounding Indigenous concerns.
Truth and Reconciliation Actions
Incluzia is on a journey of truth and reconciliation and is working through the the following Calls to Action as set forth by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada:
Business and Reconciliation
92. We call upon the corporate sector in Canada to adopt the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a reconciliation framework and to apply its principles, norms, and standards to corporate policy and core operational activities involving Indigenous peoples and their lands and resources. This would include, but not be limited to, the following:
Commit to meaningful consultation, building respectful relationships, and obtaining the free, prior, and informed consent of Indigenous peoples before proceeding with economic development projects.
Ensure that Aboriginal peoples have equitable access to jobs, training, and education opportunities in the corporate sector, and that Aboriginal communities gain long-term sustainable benefits from economic development projects.
Provide education for management and staff on the history of Aboriginal peoples, including the history and legacy of residential schools, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Treaties and Aboriginal rights, Indigenous law, and Aboriginal–Crown relations. This will require skills based training in intercultural competency, conflict resolution, human rights, and anti-racism.
