National Day of Truth and Reconciliation

On this day,

Iron & Earth’s team recognizes that we are settlers that inhabit unceded lands across Turtle Island, territories full of rich Indigenous history and traditions. We aim to honour and respect the past and present connection of Indigenous Peoples with this land, its waterways, and resources.

On Truth and Reconciliation Day, we join together to honour survivors, their families and communities, and to mourn all the children who were lost to the repressive residential school system. We also join our voices to those claiming for the full implementation of the United Nations Declaration of Indigenous Rights, as well as the 94 Calls to Action proposed by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

With this in mind, our organization is committed to always attaining free, prior, and informed consent when working with Indigenous Peoples, as well as our team being trained in accordance to the Call to Action number 92.iii with skills-based training in intercultural competency, conflict resolution, human rights, and anti-racism.

In solidarity,

The Iron & Earth Team

Iron & Earth is committed to partnering with Indigenous workers to empower their communities to become self-sufficient in training programs, clean energy transition projects, and employment opportunities to combat environmental racism. It falls to all of us to continue the work of healing and reconciliation in our communities and our organizations. Our relationship with the land and the people who live here shapes who we are. It is in the spirit of reconciliation and honouring the past that we recognize treaties and agreements wherever they are and wherever we work.

We also acknowledge all peoples who live, work, and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
As individuals and teams we may make mistakes along the way, but we are dedicated to growth, openness, compassion, and forgiveness. These principles in our work are essential to building successful and healthy relationships with individuals, communities, organizations, and governments.

We look forward to building a path to lead us to a better relationship with Indigenous nations and the environment around us based on peace, friendship, and respect.
