We will Decolonize and Indigenize our spaces

Given the enormous importance, historical structures, and complexity of the issues identified in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's final report and building on Lambton College's partnership with local First Nations, Lambton College commits to Decolonize and Indigenize our learning and working environments in ways that are credible within both Indigenous and academic communities.
