How Google Canada Is Acknowledging Canada Day
Today, Canadians from coast to coast to coast are celebrating Canada Day, a day that is steeped in traditions and a great sense of national pride.
In the midst of these celebrations, we also recognize the need to acknowledge horrific elements of our shared history that have caused intergenerational trauma and pain for Indigenous people.
Here at Google Canada, we are deliberately making space for Indigenous communities while encouraging Canadians to learn more about reconciliation.
Here are some helpful resources: If you, or people you know, need immediate assistance, the Indian Residential School Survivors Society (IRSSS) Emergency Crisis Line is available 24/7 for those that may need counselling support: 1-800-721-0066 or 1-866-925-4419.
