September 30th is a very important day for Indigenous people in Canada. It is known as Truth and Reconciliation Day, and it is a time for Canadians to reflect on the harm that was done to Indigenous people through the residential school system, and to commit to working towards reconciliation. This day is an opportunity for all Canadians to learn about the history of residential schools and to understand the ongoing impacts that Indigenous people continue to face as a result. As part of the awareness program within ASP Residential and Commercial Guard teams, wristbands have been distributed to promote Truth and Reconciliation Day. These wristbands serve as a reminder that we all have a role to play in the ongoing process of reconciliation.
The wristbands distributed as part of the awareness program are a powerful symbol of solidarity with Indigenous people. They serve as a reminder that we must all work together to acknowledge the harm that was done, and to commit to building a better future. By wearing the wristbands, the Residential and Commercial Guard teams are demonstrating their commitment to reconciliation, and their willingness to learn and grow. This is an important step from ASP Security Services towards healing and building stronger relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada.
