IRIS joins all Canadians in celebrating National Indigenous Peoples Day. We are a country of many nations and peoples, and IRIS is growing from our close partnerships with grassroots Indigenous individuals and organizations where we are learning about Indigenous ways of knowing, the truth about the violence of colonialism – then and now and the ways communities can work towards reconciliation.  We understand that there are many pathways to inclusion, and that giving up space and listening is key to building solidarity and learning how to work with one another as we walk together towards a more inclusive, accessible and equal society.

A few of our partnerships with Indigenous peoples and organizations are reflected in our recent video for National AccessAbility Week https://irisinstitute.ca/2021/06/02/national-accessability-week-2021/.
