The TRC (Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada) announced in 2015 94 Calls to Action in which all cities, towns, municipalities, governments and individual Canadians are urged to implement in their day-to-day operations.
Although there are 94 Calls to Action outlined by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, not all are currently applicable to the Town of Devon. So far, we have identified a list of actions which can be adopted and implemented within the town which will help us continue down the path of reconciliation and reconciliaction.
By beginning to implement the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada Calls to Action within our municipality, Devon will continue to show progressive leadership in the area of Reconciliation and strengthened relationships between Indigenous peoples of Devon and surrounding communities. Although reconciliation cannot be performed overnight, its small actions such as these that begin to create positive change and impact not only residents of Devon, but visitors and surrounding communities, thus benefiting everyone involved!
