COVID-19 Updates

September 30th is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The day honours the lost children and survivors of residential schools, their families, and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process.

As such the MTAM office will be closed on September 30th to honour this day.

As MTAM works to create authentic alliances with Indigenous communities in a spirit of reconciliation and cooperation, our Inclusive Practice Committee has shared a list of resources that they have recommended to our membership. We hope that these resources help highlight the history, culture, stories, and artistic contributions of Indigenous individuals and communities.
