Truth and Reconciliation

NSM Canada is committed to honouring Truth and Reconciliation, and to implementing the Calls to Action for Businesses (CTA #92, Business and Reconciliation) as part of our daily business practice. This includes:

  • Our Leadership Team reading, understanding and regularly reviewing the 94 Calls to Action in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada Report.
  • Ensuring that Aboriginal Peoples have equitable access to jobs, training and education opportunities in the corporate sector.
  • Providing education for management and staff on the history of Aboriginal Peoples, including the history and legacy of residential schools.
Education
  • Our Leadership Team and Branch Managers have all completed Indigenous Awareness courses, and anyone who joins our Leadership Team or as a Branch Manager is required to complete a course as part of their onboarding.

  • Residential school education for all staff
    • Each year, during the week of Truth and Reconciliation Day, we send a communication asking each staff member to set aside time in their schedules to educate themselves on Truth and Reconciliation, and the history of the residential school system in Canada. This communication includes at least 10 links where our team can learn about these topics.

Donations
  • Quarterly donations are made to Friendship Centres in communities where our branches are located.

Employment Opportunities

(Ensuring that Aboriginal Peoples have equitable access to jobs, training and education opportunities in the corporate sector)

  • Job opportunities should regularly be posted on Indigenous recruitment websites.
  • Build relationships with local Friendship Centres to have the opportunity to share our job openings with the community.

Equipment Repair Clinics
  • Our 2022 objective is to create a framework & proposal for offering free medical equipment repair clinics in conjunction with Friendship Centres near our branches, and to implement at least one of these clinics.
