The ‘Every Child Matters’  Yearlong Learning Challenge launched on October 1, the second year for the initiative.

“I feel it is my responsibility to keep the momentum of Truth and Reconciliation going throughout the year. Having Every Child Matter’s Year-long Challenge begin the day after the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, demonstrates the importance and commitment toward reconciliation,” said Jenna Jasek, School District 6 vice principal for Indigenous Learning and Equity and co-partner. “Climate change, mental health and the overall well-being of all people are being challenged daily. Inviting Indigenous Peoples and their knowledge, pedagogy, and practices into systems will aid in addressing many of the challenges we are facing locally and globally. Yet, many people are still learning the truth of the atrocities that occurred and are occurring to Indigenous Peoples. Until communities and systems have Truth and Reconciliation as a priority, advocates, allies, and Indigenous Peoples can only make minor differences.”
