Take the Pledge

As we begin our journey to restore balanced relationships with Indigenous Peoples, we can take the bold step to commit ourselves to the reconciliation process. By taking a pledge of reconciliation, we can demonstrate our support for this process. Please take the pledge and then let people know you have taken the pledge via Twitter using the hashtag #PayhoninPledge

Pledge of Reconciliation

Fields with an * are required.

I [the above named], in the spirit of reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples, solemnly pledge to:

  1. Learn more about Indigenous Peoples, their experiences and their history;
  2. Actively support positive change in our relations in St. Albert;
  3. Examine colonial structures in our institutions that limit the full participation of Indigenous Peoples;
  4. Look for ways, both personally and professionally, to implement Truth and Reconciliation Commission calls to action;
  5. Find ways to address the Indigenous-related myths and misconceptions with my fellow Canadians;
  6. Not perpetuate stereotypes in my conversations or observations; and
  7. Encourage others around me to keep reconciliation an ongoing effort.
