With Sept. 30 marking National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, The Chamber continues to work to support Indigenous entrepreneurs and First Nations.
"The more we listen and learn, the more we understand how much we can benefit from embracing Indigenous knowledge about the lands we live on," Chamber CEO Bruce Williams said. "We have acknowledged the role we played in the suppression of Indigenous culture and commerce. Now we need to keep taking action to support the inclusion of Indigenous people and First Nations in our broader business community."
Bruce and Chamber member Jamin Zuroski recently spoke with CBC Radio's Gregor Craigie about what The Chamber is doing to support reconciliation.
