The WRDSB is committed to ensuring leadership that recognizes the impact of colonialism on society and public systems that have oppressed Indigenous people both on this land and in our school system. The WRDSB is situated on the Haldimand Tract, land that was promised to the Haudenosaunee of the Six Nations of the Grand River, and is within the territory of the Attawandaron, Anishinaabe, and Haudenosaunee peoples. In the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation, we commit to transform our education system, to decolonize our practices and our minds, and to honour Indigenous histories, culture and perspectives, today, and every day, in our systems, our schools, and our community. We cannot have reconciliation without first knowing the truth; the truth about Indigenous and settler history in Canada and the truth about the Education System we lead. Finding leaders dedicated to this work is essential as we continue to do more and do better to see, address and dismantle the systemic racism built on the power and privilege born out of white supremacy and colonialism.
