This year, National Volunteer Week (NVW) will take place in Canada from April 24th to 30th. In Quebec, this year’s theme is “Volunteering changes lives.” Led by the Fédération des centres d’action bénévole du Québec (FCABQ), NVW helps recognize the work of all volunteers, regardless of their area of involvement.
With the implementation of the Gradual Civilization and Gradual Enfranchisement sections of the Indian Act in 1876, Indigenous peoples across Canada have continually faced racism, discrimination, exploitation, and domination. The Act, designed for the purpose of assimilating Indigenous communities into the dominant system and eradicating any traditional ways of life, is a continual source of trauma, impoverishment, and a detriment to the social fabric of Indigenous communities, Nations, and families.
