District News
Walk in the spirit of reconciliation!
The South East Sport, Culture & Recreation District is pleased to present a Walk for Reconciliation Guide. This guide aims to provide sport, culture and recreation groups the information and resources needed to host a reconciliation walking event. Every community and situation is different, and we invite you, as the expert in your own community, to use this guide in a way that is appropriate, impactful and safe in your respective environments and situations.

It is important to note that each municipality and/or organization will be at a different point in its journey to support reconciliation and that this guide should not be considered as the only option, but a resource of suggestions for those groups that are starting out. It is a tool meant to help share and grow reconciliation efforts!

Why host a reconciliation walking event?
  • Helps to build capacity for intercultural understanding, empathy, and mutual respect.
  • Is an opportunity to work with community partners, and Indigenous communities and organizations to learn and build.
  • Can happen anytime; or can be held in June in conjunction with Indigenous Peoples Day (June 21), or in September {Orange Shirt Day/National Day for Truth & Reconciliation on September 30}.

How To Build an Inclusive Volunteering Program
If you don't build accessibility and inclusivity into your corporate volunteering program, you risk undercutting your efforts. That's because the very benefits of volunteering hinge on all employees feeling invited and included. Done right, an inclusive volunteering program provides a deeper sense of meaning for employees, strengthens relationships across the company, and improves company culture.
