National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
We stand united in remembrance, reflection, and unwavering commitment to continuing BDO’s journey of reconciliation.
In September, we gathered in the spirit of learning, sharing, and active listening in honour of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. We were honored to host Randy Elm, a Knowledge Keeper from Saddle Lake Cree Nation, who led our opening prayer and conducted a smudging ceremony. We had the privilege of welcoming Michael Etherington, who shared insights into the significance of truth and reconciliation. Michael also provided valuable guidance on the meaningful actions our firm can take on our journey towards reconciliation. We also recognized the Indigenous artists we commissioned to create beautiful designs for our orange shirt initiative: Travis Fleury, Mikaila Stevens, and Memengwaans Ireland.
The education continues through our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council’s Indigenous Peoples Pillar as they provide valuable resources and information to our people.
