Get ready for a powerful event.
Rose LeMay is an accomplished speaker with keynotes to international mental health conferences, department and ministry retreats and more. On topics of Indigenous inclusion and anti-racism, on leading reconciliation, on finding your vision of Canada, Rose can raise hope and sense of team for your organization.
The highlight at the event was Rose LeMay and her presentation on National Day of Reconciliation.
This is a very heavy subject and you did such an amazing job of sharing some history and awareness to many attending this event. Your talk was inspirational and needed, so thank you.
Rose’s keynote at the annual Catalyst Canada event was fabulous. Authentic, inspiring and engaging. Reconciliation is a heavy topic and Rose’s approach is frank and real. Her manner engages and empowers allies to do more and do better. Highly recommend.
TRC Call to Action #94
We call upon the corporate sector in Canada to adopt the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a reconciliation framework and to apply its principles, norms, and standards to corporate policy and core operational activities involving Indigenous peoples and their lands and resources. This would include, but not be limited to, the following:
- Commit to meaningful consultation, building respectful relationships, and obtaining the free, prior, and informed consent of Indigenous peoples before proceeding with economic development projects.
- Ensure that Aboriginal peoples have equitable access to jobs, training, and education opportunities in the corporate sector, and that Aboriginal communities gain long-term sustainable benefits from economic development projects.
- Provide education for management and staff on the history of Aboriginal peoples, including the history and legacy of residential schools, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Treaties and Aboriginal rights, Indigenous law, and Aboriginal–Crown relations. This will require skills based training in intercultural competency, conflict resolution, human rights, and anti-racism.
