Equity Diversity and Inclusion Committee

Physical and Health Education Canada, inclusive of the Research and Provincial and Territorial Councils, stands for Truth and Reconciliation. 

PHE Canada acknowledges that Indigenous peoples have suffered under colonial and postcolonial educational policies and continue to do so. PHE Canada believes that to work respectfully with Indigenous nations, our staff needs to be aware of the collective impact that intergenerational trauma from educational practice continues to have on Indigenous children, youth, and families. 

PHE Canada continues to learn and work to understand our shared history in a way that moves us towards a stronger and healthier future and healthier learning environments, with relationships rooted in mutual understanding and respect.
