Campus Truth and Reconciliation Initiatives
Champlain College Saint-Lambert has undertaken numerous activities to promote learning and foster awareness of the reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people through education supporting the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. With the support of faculty, staff, and a dynamic Community of Practice committee, our Champlain Indigenous Student Ambassadors are active in the community offering support to 1st year students, planning Indigenous Orientation Retreats, and increasing intercollegiate partnerships to work with Indigenous students from other Cégeps. Pedagogical Day activities such as blanket exercises and visits to Kahnawake and the First Nations Adult Education School Council continue to promote Indigenous consciousness. The George Wallace Library hosts an expanding Truth & Reconciliation Collection, which you can access through the Champlain TRC Community of Practice link on the Omnivox Portal.
