RECONCILIATION

That growing community holds our future community leaders.

 

Canada is at a turning point in its history. The relationship between our nation’s Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities is being transformed to help build a better future for all Canadians.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission, a monumental step forward in the relationship between Canada’s Indigenous and non- Indigenous communities, gives us all hope, and challenges each of us to shape a better future for ALL Canadians.

Canada’s Indigenous population is growing faster than any other segment of our population. So much so that in 20 years, one in five people will identify themselves as Indigenous.

 

We now have the opportunity to acknowledge our past and, through honouring culture and creating inclusive communities, build a stronger and healthier future for Indigenous peoples - as well as for our own organizations.

At No.9, we recognize that the philosophy behind Imagine My Sustainable Community means embracing all of Canada’s communities and building relationships with Indigenous peoples. Our program is based on creating change and finding solutions for a sustainable lifestyle – moving forward, reconciliation will be a core consideration in our work.

We commit to fostering relationships with members of the Indigenous community, Indigenous-led architecture firms, and other potential partners, to further our work in creating sustainable communities. There is a large market and talent pool to engage and mobilize in educating our youth.
