Not Forgetting Our History, But Celebrating Our Future

Last week’s announcement that 751 graves were discovered by the Cowessess First Nation at the Marieval Indian Residential School in Saskatchewan is yet another sad reminder of Canada’s legacy of genocide perpetrated against Indigenous communities. This follows the news last month that the remains of 215 children were found at the Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia. As the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) warned, these heartbreaking discoveries are likely to be repeated as further investigations are done at other residential schools.

Giving Back

The impact of donor support begins by enhancing the work of our clinicians, researchers and trainees but then resonates throughout the health-care system and ultimately serves to improve human health.
