We acknowledge that we are writing to you from the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We acknowledge the harm colonization has caused First Nations peoples. We thank them for allowing us to be here on their territory.
We are devastated by the discovery of the remains of 215 indigenous children found at a former residential school last week in Kamloops BC. Our thoughts are with the Tk’emlups te Secwepemc First Nation and all Indigenous peoples across Canada. We respectfully offer condolences to the families and communities who have lost members to the residential school system.
As a company we pledge to further educate ourselves on the rich history of First Nations peoples in Canada and how best we can serve as allies to this part of Canadian society.
