Truth and Reconciliation
It is with a spirit of celebration and ceremony that The City of Calgary moves forward in the journey towards Truth and Reconciliation. Through the Indigenous Relations Office, The City is committed to working with the community to educate people about the history of Indigenous people in Calgary and the surrounding areas.
The City of Calgary is guided by several policies, documents and reports as it works towards reconciliation and improving Indigenous relations.
- Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future
- Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action
- White Goose Flying Report
- City of Calgary’s Indigenous Policy
The City recognizes the federally designated National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30 by collaborating with Indigenous community groups to support this important annual event. The White Goose Flying Report’s Reconciliation Calls to Action are a priority for The City, including #22: Recognize value of healing practices.
2021 was the first City of Calgary led Orange Shirt Day event.
