While September 30th marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, it is important to recognize that this day has long been known as “Orange Shirt Day”, an Indigenous-led grassroots movement to bring awareness of residential schools as an intergenerational human rights violation, by sharing the actual experience of survivors as children and giving voice to those who did not make it home.

The Indigenous Caucus of the Indigenous Advisory and Monitoring Committee for the Trans Mountain Expansion and Existing Pipeline (IAMC-TMX) invites all Canadians to stand with Indigenous Peoples by amplifying the dialogue in their families, communities and workplaces. Acknowledging, listening and sitting with these uncomfortable truths is the first step to re- telling our shared story. The process of reconciliation begins with each of us.

As a federal initiative, the government is responding to the Truth and Reconciliation’s 80th Call to Action. In doing so, the federal government is called upon, in collaboration with Aboriginal peoples, to establish, as a statutory holiday, a National Day for Truth and Reconciliation to honour Survivors, their families, and communities, and ensure that public commemoration of the history and legacy of residential schools remains a vital component of the reconciliation process.

Start by taking time to read the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Reports and familiarize yourself with the 94 Calls to Action.

On May 05, the IAMC-TMX is observing Red Dress Day, also known as the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and Two-Spirit People (MMIWG2S). The IAMC-TMX Socioeconomic Subcommittee is collaborating with Natural Resources Canada, the lead department for UNDA Action Plan Measure 12, to better understand and respond to the ongoing gendered and racialized violence against Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQIA+ people associated with the resource sector. On this important day, we encourage all Canadians to continue educating themselves about the MMIWG Calls for Justice and support MMIWG events in their local area.

The Indigenous Advisory and Monitoring Committee for Trans Mountain (IAMC-TMX) welcomes Budget 2024's investment in our continued work. We'll continue to work on shared goals of safety and protection of environmental and Indigenous interests regarding lands and water.

International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, March 21, recognizes past and present injustices and prejudices founded in racial discrimination, including the ongoing social and economic repercussions for Canada’s Indigenous peoples. The IAMC-TMX Socioeconomic Subcommittee (SESC) is committed to surfacing issues related to racial discrimination, including as this links to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people, in the context of resource development activities. We show up for this work daily through direct engagement with Indigenous communities, research focused on Indigenous Peoples experience with the Trans Mountain Expansion Project, and our ongoing support to Indigenous communities building strengths in the area of socioeconomic monitoring. https://www.mmiwg-ffada.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Executive_Summary.pdf
