CESD adopts new land acknowledgment to support reconciliation

The Chinook’s Edge School Division (CESD) has adopted a new land acknowledgment in order to support reconciliation. The land acknowledgment includes updates that were made in consultation and collaboration with Indigenous leaders and other stakeholders, as well as visits to the district’s historical sites. “A land acknowledgement is a way that we can demonstrate our commitment, as a school division, to reconciliations,” said CESD associate superintendent Karyn Barber. “We truly appreciate the support and participation of students, central office leaders, staff, school board trustees and Indigenous partners in this work.”
