June is National Indigenous History Month. During this month, Canadians honour the history, heritage, and diversity of Indigenous peoples in Canada. However, this year’s celebration of the rich and vibrant languages, cultures and traditions of Indigenous Peoples is overshadowed by the recent discovery of a mass grave at the Kamloops Residential School site in British Columbia. As we highlight National Indigenous History Month, L’Oréal Canada joins indigenous communities across the country in mourning. We honor the innocent lives lost and reaffirm our commitment to do our part in creating a better and more inclusive society.
Several awareness and educational activities for employees will take place throughout the month, culminating with a special gesture on June 21, which is National Indigenous Peoples Day. Stay tuned for more information!
