Celebrating Canada Day Thoughtfully

The best way to celebrate Canada day thoughtfully is to actively listen to, respect, and acknowledge Indigenous communities. Through educating ourselves on the harms and mistakes of colonization and development practices, we as individuals and communities can try to move forward in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration to build a stronger world together.

Above all, we must recognize that we cannot celebrate our country without acknowledging the history of the land we occupy. Canada is a part of Turtle Island, situated on the traditional unceded land of the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people who are the past, present, and future caretakers of this land. When we celebrate today, we must do so in a manner that amplifies indigenous voices and respects the true caretakers of the land we live on. We do this to reaffirm our commitment and responsibility to improve relationships between nations and our understanding of local Indigenous peoples and their cultures.

We recognize that we cannot speak on the behalf of the indigenous community. Therefore, we will be using our platform to amplify and highlight resources that can be used to better understand and support their needs. This growing list is part of our ongoing effort to share the powerful voices of Indigenous leaders, storytellers, and organizations to support our collective relearning of the living history of this land and its people. Listen, learn, and act with us. Please contact Info@EWB.ca to contribute to this list.
