The City of Burnaby is looking to be a better steward of Indigenous heritage.
The community heritage commission requested $1,500 in funding from council to hire a consultant to provide members of the commission with training on “best practices for local governments on recognizing and providing stewardship for Indigenous heritage resources.”
The request emerged out of a November 2019 presentation to the commission on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action for local governments.
“Commissioners responded to the report by expressing interest in learning more about how the work of Truth and Reconciliation could be incorporated as part of the city’s heritage program,” reads a staff report to the heritage commission.
