Greetings,

 

As many of you know, 30 September 2021 marks the first National Day of Truth and Reconciliation.

While this day is not being recognized as a statutory holiday in the province of Alberta, RAE wants to acknowledge the significance of the day with this special edition  2021 National Day for Truth and Reconciliation Bulletin to honour the day as well as answer the TRC Calls to Action by providing educational resources to RAE staff via the Indigenous Canada course, offered online from the University of Alberta and Coursera.

 

RAE will reimburse Employees who wish to obtain certification for this course. Employees who wish to take the certificate version of the course simply need to sign up, complete the course, and submit an expense WF to their home project with a copy of their receipt as well as their certificate of completion.

 

For Contractors, a free version of the course also exists which offers the same learning experience, but without the certificate.

 

You may also want to honour the day by wearing the colour orange. Since 2013, the 30th of September has also been known as Orange Shirt Day.
