Truth and Reconciliation Day September 30, 2022
As we recognize the 2nd annual National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we will all take time to honour the lost children and Survivors of residential schools, their families, and communities.
One Sky Forest Products is committed to our progress on implementing Call to Action #92 of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission which reads:
We call upon the corporate sector in Canada to adopt the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a reconciliation framework and to apply its principles, norms, and standards to corporate policy and core operational activities involving Indigenous peoples and their lands and resources. This would include, but not be limited to, the following:
i. Commit to meaningful consultation, building respectful relationships, and obtaining the free, prior, and informed consent of Indigenous peoples before proceeding with economic development projects.
ii. Ensure that Aboriginal peoples have equitable access to jobs, training, and education opportunities in the corporate sector, and that Aboriginal communities gain long-term sustainable benefits from economic development projects.
iii. Provide education for management and staff on the history of Aboriginal peoples, including the history and legacy of residential schools, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Treaties and Aboriginal rights, Indigenous law, and Aboriginal–Crown relations. This will require skills-based training in intercultural competency, conflict resolution, human rights, and anti-racism
Together, we must build a future that is stronger, united, and inclusive.

Truth and Reconciliation Day
Today we honor the lost Children and Survivors of Residential Schools, their Families and Communities.
This past year has truly highlighted the tragedy Indigenous Communities have suffered. We all have a role to play as we travel on the road to true reconciliation. The road will not be easy. We will face many hills and rough patches, but together, we can and will navigate each obstacle.
At One Sky Forest Products, we ask that you take time today, September 30th, to understand the past that needs to be healed, to learn the true history of Indigenous Peoples and work towards a future that is stronger, united, and inclusive. Wear your orange shirt in honor of the children that were lost and in support of all the survivors of Residential Schools.
