About Rotary District 7040

In the last two years, we have taken action to promote healing and reconciliation between Indigenous and non-indigenous people.

  • We honor and acknowledge the traditional territories and lands of the specific Indigenous Peoples of D7040 at the beginning of district gatherings. This acknowledgement and recognition form the basis for our actions.
  • The district DEI committee welcomed D7040 HIP (Honoring Indigenous Peoples) coordinator Rene Melchior to our membership this year.
  • Clubs throughout the district connect with Indigenous People through learning and service projects.



Other Avenues of Allyship:

Canada's Day of Truth and Reconciliation is also know as "Orange Shirt Day". You can show your support with an Orange Shirt.
