The Niagara Region is taking steps to ensure all employees have a better understanding of Indigenous cultures and their needs.
The Region is introducing new mandatory training for all staff members, covering the history of Indigenous People in the region through a three video series developed by the Fort Erie Native Friendship Centre.
It comes as the Region is also preparing to observe the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation next week on Thursday.
Ahead of last night’s regional council meeting, Regional Chair Jim Bradley said, “As we look to September 30, I would encourage everyone to respect this day as an opportunity to both reflect and educate ourselves on the realities of the past, and on the possibilities for the future as we work together in the spirit of reconciliation.”
