The Office of the Treaty Commissioner through the speaker bureau continues to work with organizations, groups, government and individuals, across the province to continue to share knowledge.

One of the speakers Annie Battiste presented to Sutton Pension and Benefits on Dec. 2. The information session was on how as financial planners employees could become more engaged in Truth and Reconciliation and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action.

“She is an excellent educator. She was able to accomplish a great deal in a short time and left us all with an eagerness to learn more," said Benefits Advisor Andrea Hansen about the presentation.

What started out as Sutton Pension and Benefits wanting to have a land acknowledgement and having desire to know more about why and who to acknowledge, became the organization requesting an education session by the Speakers Bureau.  As a result of this information session, they will continue to work with OTC on this journey to become more aware of their roles and responsibilities as Treaty partners.
