On a Path of Truth and Reconciliation

Truth and Reconciliation day

September 30th marks a significant day in Canada recognized as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, also known as Orange Shirt Day.

Here at wintranslation, we pause to reflect on this solemn occasion and the enduring legacy of residential schools that has left an indelible mark on our society. This legacy is ever-present in the stories our translators share, as well as in the translation materials we engage with daily. It is a reminder of the deep-seated pain and trauma that Indigenous communities have endured for generations.

This year, we are offering our team members the opportunity to engage with the 4 Seasons of Reconciliation program provided by First Nations University and Reconciliation Education. Through this initiative, we aim to provide more opportunities for our team to learn about the complex history of First Nations, Inuit, Métis, and non-Indigenous peoples in the territory now known as Canada.

We believe that education and dialogue are essential steps towards healing and reconciliation. We encourage everyone to explore the resources available online for those seeking to deepen their understanding, become allies, and take part in the reconciliation process.
