National Day for Truth and Reconciliation: Construction’s role

OTTAWA — Today marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, which honours the lost children and survivors of residential schools, their families and communities.

Numerous events are taking place across the country today and for the remainder of the week to commemorate the painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools as well as to raise awareness of Indigenous culture and where society can make improvements.

Throughout the year the Daily Commercial News and Journal of Commerce have covered industry projects and initiatives meant to increase construction’s understanding of Indigenous culture and how it can improve its involvement in the sector.

Here is some of our coverage:
