On National Day for Truth and Reconciliation (NDTR), the Stanley Park Brewing team will continue our journey of diversity and inclusion. We welcome this day as an important opportunity for learning, reflection, and conversation as individuals, a team and amongst members of the community. We acknowledge that our home in the park is part of the traditional unceded territory of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) nations, where we are fortunate to gather, learn, work, and play.
On September 30th in observation of NDTR our Restaurant & Brewpub will allow guests the opportunity to add a donation to their bill, matched by Stanley Park Brewing, in support of the Indian Residential School Survivors Society (IRSSS). We are proud to support the IRSSS again this year, an organization dedicated to providing essential services to Residential School Survivors, their families, and those dealing with Intergenerational traumas.
Our team has set aside time to read and reflect on the 94 Calls to Action for Truth and Reconciliation. We encourage you to take time to not only to read and educate, but to discover the rich Indigenous history and ancient stories surrounding us by supporting local Indigenous owned businesses like our friends at Talaysay Tours.
We all have a role to play in reconciling the past and acknowledge the various forms this work can be done to help create a better world for future generations, remembering always that Every Child Matters.
A 24-hour National Indian Residential School Crisis Line is available at 1-866-925-4419 to support former students and others affected by a residential school experience.
