At Family Service Regina, we know that when we help an individual or a family, the benefit flows to the entire community.
Family Service Regina envisions a safe, inclusive and vibrant community in which all people are resilient, confident and filled with hope. Therefore, Family Service Regina is committed to a path of ongoing reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples based on mutually respectful relationships. We affirm our commitment to and support The Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, especially those that speak to child welfare and individual and family wellbeing, inclusiveness and justice.
Motivated by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, we seek to be part of the journey to reconciliation with Indigenous communities. This begins with the recognition that healing and reconciliation first require an understanding of the historic experience and current experiences of Indigenous and Metis communities in Saskatchewan. Family Service Regina has committed to incorporating into our core training for staff members information on the history and legacy of residential schools, the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Treaties and Aboriginal rights, Indigenous law, and Aboriginal-Crown relations and the histories of the Metis Nation.
We have also committed to a recruitment strategy to increase the representation of people with First Nations, Aboriginal, Metis and Inuit heritage on our staff and board.
