BC Association of Community Response Networks

Our Top Resources for December 2022

  1. Territory Acknowledgements Information Booklet (Dec. 2022): Published by the First Nations Health Authority, this guide answers some common questions around why and how to acknowledge traditional First Nations territories in BC, and share wise practices from institutions across BC and Canada on how to move beyond just recognition to create concrete and systemic improvements in settler-First Nations relationships. The important thing to remember is that acknowledging traditional territory is a small part of a process, and each individual is at a different stage in their own learning, and their own stage of reconciling with their own history and with First Nations peoples in Canada. The booklet also includes additional resources from across the country.
