Truth and Reconciliation Day 2022

The Ocean Acidification Canadian Community of Practice is a countrywide cohesion grown out of the cooperation of groups and individuals. Indigenous communities are an important part of the OA community having lived with and observed coastal systems for generations. Tomorrow is the second annual Truth and Reconciliation day, which is a day put aside to commemorate the children who died in residential schools, survivors and families that are still being impacted by them. We as a community would like to share educational resources to assist our community in understanding the difficult past that we all share with hopes of moving forward in a future of equality and kindness.
