St. John Ambulance Canada stands in solidarity with the First Nations families, communities, and those deeply affected by the residential school system. We recognize the generational impact upon the First Nations community and mourn the appalling and unacceptable loss of 215 Indigenous children at the Residential School in Kamloops.

Our thoughts are with Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation and indeed, with all Indigenous communities across Canada at this time.

We are committed to continuing to work with our First Nations partners towards reconciliation and healing. We wish to offer meaningful support to the Indigenous community across Canada many of whom are our colleagues, volunteers, instructors, friends, and family.
