Celebrating National Indigenous Peoples Day

In recognition of National Indigenous Peoples Day, we celebrate Indigenous cultures and communities. Equally, we acknowledge the oppression and discrimination that Indigenous Peoples have experienced for centuries. Our team is honored to be able to support you in your wealth management strategies. We believe that wealth creation is one of the many ways that we can work together to fight injustice and inequality. 
Beyond acknowledgement, this is an opportunity for all Canadians to learn about Indigenous culture and history. Although Covid-19 has prevented us from attending celebrations this year, our team will celebrate and learn by:
  1. Researching the Indigenous history of where we live and work
  2. Reading a book by an Indigenous author
  3. Discussing the 10 Guiding Principles from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report with a friend or colleague
  4. Listening to music by Indigenous musicians.
