In the week ahead of the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, the leadership of Paper Excellence Canada and its sister companies Domtar and Resolute Forest Products came together for an Indigenous cultural awareness talk.
In a company press statement, Paper Excellence thanked Chief Ian Campbell of the Squamish First Nation and Rob Everson, Hereditary Chief of the Gigal’ga̱m ‘Walas Kwagu’ł, for sharing frank and thoughtful presentations on both the history and effects of colonialism on Indigenous Peoples. Both men also shared their own personal perspectives on Truth and Reconciliation.
They suggested a variety of resources for people who wanted to learn more:
