Awareness Campaigns

On September 30, we observe the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, remembering the intergenerational trauma from residential schools. Through a virtual company-wide sharing circle led by Indigenous team members, we foster conversation, learning, and allyship. Additionally, we participate in Orange Shirt Day, wearing orange to raise awareness about the impact of residential schools and affirming our commitment to every child's importance.

National Indigenous History Month & National Indigenous Peoples Day

In June, we celebrate National Indigenous History Month, honouring the heritage, resilience, and vibrant culture of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities in Canada. And on June 21st, National Indigenous Peoples Day, we invite employees to learn and share about the diverse cultures and experiences that shape their identity.

Reconciliation Training

Sodexo is committed to fostering a deeper understanding of Indigenous history and culture among all employees. Our mandated course and workshops cover the experiences of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities, raising awareness of our shared Canadian history. The content aims to build a relationship of respect and trust between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. 


Amy Frank PortraitSince joining the Council for Indigenous Peoples, I’ve participated in many meaningful conversations that have contributed to my personal and professional development. The EBRG has provided opportunities to learn, reflect and better understand how I can create and foster a welcoming and inclusive working environment where culture, tradition and community can be celebrated.
