Lakehead University, the University of Saskatchewan, the Gabriel Dumont Institute, and Lethbridge College have installed new symbols and images of reconciliation on campus. Lakehead has unveiled a permanent Every Child Matters crosswalk on the Orillia campus and raised a Survivors’ Flag for the month of September. “The Every Child Matters crosswalks remind us that every child matters and as a post-secondary institution, we must be vigilant in our education, research, outreach, and community service,” said Lakehead Vice-Provost, Indigenous Initiatives Denise Baxter. USask and GDI unveiled a Métis Red River Cart on campus that recognizes the importance of Métis students as well as the relationship between USask, GDI, and Métis Nation—Saskatchewan. Lethbridge College has unveiled a new logo of a bear with an arrow created by Blackfoot artist Monte Eagle Plume for its sports teams and redesigned its gym floor to include new Indigenous images and phrases such as “Welcome to Ohkotoki’aahkkoiyiiniimaan.”
