The Coalition of Child Care Advocates of BC recognizes today is the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. A sombre day reflecting on re-discovered unmarked graves of Indigenous children, and ongoing injustices, violence and racism against First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. We lift-up the good work of the BC Aboriginal Child Care Society, the Métis Nation British Columbia, the Aboriginal Head Start Association of BC, and the many other Indigenous organizations advocating for systemic change. And, we support all the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action, especially #12.
We call upon the federal, provincial, territorial, and Aboriginal governments to develop culturally appropriate early childhood education programs for Aboriginal families.
