ASCHA recognizes we are located on the traditional territory of Cree, Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Iroquois, Dene, and Ojibway/Saulteaux/Anishinaabe nations; lands that are now known as part of Treaties 6, 7, and 8 and homeland of the Métis. ASCHA is committed to fostering respectful and cooperative relations with Indigenous and non-Indigenous partners and communities.
ASCHA believes that for truth and reconciliation to occur, it starts with education and open communication. ASCHA aims to offer meaningful learning resources and experiences for their members and members’ communities, in support of truth and reconciliation. ASCHA will continue to engage in learning and dialogue to promote change and to support its members to participate in changing the legacy of a traumatic past to a healthy and vibrant future for Indigenous and non-Indigenous members alike.
