Reconciliation & Decolonization

Living into reconciliation has been an intentional goal of The Federation for nearly a decade and is the foundation of our strategic plan. In all that we do, The Federation strives to change the conditions in which we are living and create more equitable relationships for and with our Indigenous partners and community members.

We believe that every endeavour is guided by a set of commitments—not just about the what, but also the why and the how. Reconciliation isn’t just a goal, it is a fundamental part of our values and one of the ways we are committed to engaging in our work. It informs almost everything we do.

It is not easy. We have made mistakes and we will continue to make mistakes. But we also believe that we do our best work when we are driven by the virtues of equity and justice and when we speak truth to power both individually and collectively.
