YVR employees recently joined a special presentation by Reconciliation Canada speaker Yvonne Rigsby-Jones. Yvonne is Snuneymuxw First Nation and Coast Salish. Over the years, her work adapted and changed from being addiction specific to pioneering and developing programs to help with sexual abuse and childhood trauma, residential school healing, elders healing and grieving individuals. Through Yvonne’s personal stories, YVR employees learned what reconciliation means to us as an organization and as individuals. This is why we are so happy to be participating in the 2017 Walk for Reconciliation.
The Walk for Reconciliation is a positive movement to build better relationships among Indigenous peoples and all Canadians. Come join us for this important event!
