When we know better, we can do better. Knowing we need to do better, however, is one thing; figuring out how to do it – or even where to start – is quite another. We need to have the uncomfortable conversations and need to address our past in order to move forward.
We know that there is a lot of goodwill in the legal community around reconciliation, but at the same time, there has been little actual change in the profession as a whole. We need to do better.
Today, on National Indigenous Peoples Day, we are pleased to announce the launch of the CBA Truth and Reconciliation Toolkit. This how-to resource can help your law firm begin or progress on your reconciliation journey. Whether you are just starting or are already active in advancing reconciliation, you will find something valuable and relevant in the toolkit.

The CBA worked with NVision Insight Group to create the Truth and Reconciliation Toolkit. We would also like to acknowledge McCarthy Tétrault for its significant contributions, and to thank our other major sponsor, Lawyers Financial.
The toolkit features a wide variety of resources, tools and templates, to assist you and your firm’s reconciliation journey. Some of the things it includes are information on what land acknowledgments really mean, templates for corporate messaging, and ideas for celebrating National Indigenous Peoples Day.
The CBA offers this toolkit in a spirit of cultural humility, and we invite you to join us on the reconciliation journey.
