DWF Legacy Places
The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund Legacy Room project is an opportunity for schools, businesses, restaurants and the corporate sector to answer Gord Downie’s call to action for reconciliation, “Do something.” and to help the Downie Wenjack Fund to support further ReconciliACTION in Canada.
A Legacy Room is a space within an organization dedicated to reconciliation and showcases an organization’s commitment to our collective reconciliation journey. It is meant to be a place where conversations about reconciliation are encouraged and serves as a constant reminder for employees, clients and guests of your organization’s commitment to reconciliation.
In becoming a Legacy Room partner, organizations commit to;
- Being reconciliation champions and Downie Wenjack Fund ambassadors
- Providing ongoing training to staff about the story of the Legacy Room and reconciliation
- Providing information to those who come into the Legacy Room about the story of Chanie Wenjack and of the residential school system
- Being an equitable workplace for Indigenous People
- Providing an annual donation to the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund
