The DWF Legacy Spaces program is an opportunity for corporations, government, organizations and educational institutions to play an important role in their communities.
Legacy Spaces are designated spaces dedicated to providing accurate information regarding Indigenous history and our journey of reconciliation. The spaces are meant to be safe and welcoming places where conversations about the past, present and future are facilitated and encouraged. They also serve as symbols and reminders for employees, clients, students and guests of the important work each of us needs to do if the promises of this country are to be fulfilled.
Legacy Spaces partners commit to:
- Being DWF ambassadors committed to reconciliation and ReconciliACTIONs
- Provide ongoing training to staff about the Legacy Spaces and reconciliation
- Provide information to those who come into the Legacy Spaces about the story of Chanie Wenjack, the residential school system, and other aspects of our history as it relates to Indigenous Peoples
- Being an equitable workplace for Indigenous Peoples
