CPhM encourages staff, Council and committee members, and pharmacy professionals to mark the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation with learning and action

CPhM recognizes the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and calls on staff, Council and committee members, and pharmacy professionals to mark September 30, 2022, with meaningful reflection and actions that help to build a more equitable healthcare system for Indigenous people. Learning opportunities are available below.

In recognition of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, the College of Pharmacists of Manitoba (CPhM) encourages pharmacy professionals to spend September 30, 2022, reflecting on the systemic racism and inequality Indigenous people face daily, including when seeking healthcare. This injustice causes real harm to Indigenous people, and we can all do better. 

The Manitoba Alliance of Health Regulatory Colleges (MAHRC) is offering the following two complimentary educational opportunities for Manitoba healthcare professionals in recognition of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation:

Further resources and learning opportunities are available on the Government of Canada website and on the CPhM Indigenous Cultural Humility, Health Equity, and Relations Resources list. 

The CPhM office will be closed on Friday, September 30, 2022, in observance of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. CPhM staff, Council, and Committee members are also encouraged to reflect on systemic racism in Canadian healthcare institutions and regulation and how we can answer the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions of Canada’s Calls to Action on healthcare.
