We acknowledge that Ottawa stands on the historic and ancestral territory of the Algonquin Anishinabeg people.
Trinity supports the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and attempts to meet its calls to action.
In addition to working with Mique Michelle to create the striking and moving mural that marks our presence on Bank Street, Trinity has hosted Justin Holness of Tribe Academy and Albert Dumont, Ottawa Poet Laureate (Algonquin), during our church services to share their journey with us and heighten our awareness and understanding of indigenous issues. We appreciate their kindness in reaching out to us.
We acknowledge that much work needs to be done in order to complete a journey of reconciliation.
Trinity supports indigenous communities, contributing generously to Bales for the North, which offers us a chance to even the economic playing field between our communities, in a small way.
We recognize that more work needs to be done toward bridging understanding and repairing damage done through our colonial history, through political and economic action and in changing attitudes. If you have a social action plan to help us move further toward reconciliation, we are open to hearing from you. Come and talk to us. We can also connect you to the All My Relations Committee of the diocese.
