West Central Women’s Resource Centre is committed to being an active partner in the work of reconciliation between settlers and Indigenous people. Hundreds of years of colonization and destructive policies such as residential schools, the Sixties Scoop, and the child welfare system have had – and continue to have – a devastating impact on our community.
We are moving forward in our journey towards reconciliation through a commitment to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action and the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) Calls for Justice. In July 2017 we declared that every July will be Reconciliation Month at the Centre. At which time we committed to dedicating resources and taking action on that most directly impact our work.
Thanks to all our staff, board, mentors, and volunteers for their hard work and dedication to reconciliation.
