June is Indigenous History Month

June is National Indigenous History Month, a time to honor the rich histories, diverse cultures, and significant contributions of Indigenous Peoples across Canada. At Master Care Janitorial and Facility Services, we are proud to celebrate this month by reflecting on our ongoing commitment to supporting Indigenous communities and reconciliation efforts.

Land Recognition

We acknowledge that our head office in Surrey, BC, is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the Kwantlen, Katzie, and Semiahmoo Nations. We are grateful to live and work on this land and recognize the enduring connection these Nations have to the region.

We are committed to building respectful relationships and supporting reconciliation efforts throughout the province

Supporting Indigenous Businesses

Master Care Janitorial has the privilege of providing cleaning services to several Indigenous-owned businesses. We recognize the importance of supporting these enterprises, not just as clients, but as vital contributors to the economic and cultural fabric of our communities. Our partnerships with Indigenous businesses are built on mutual respect and a shared vision for sustainable growth and prosperity. 

Financial Support and Community Engagement

In addition to our business partnerships, Master Care has a history of supporting Indigenous communities financially. We have contributed to various initiatives aimed at improving educational opportunities, cultural preservation, and community well-being. 

Commitment to Reconciliation

At Master Care, reconciliation is more than a policy; it is a guiding principle that shapes our interactions and decisions. We support a number of reconciliation efforts, including:

  • Employment Opportunities: We actively promote job opportunities for all, including Indigenous Peoples within our company.
  • Community Partnerships: We engage with Indigenous communities to support local initiatives and build lasting relationships.
  • Sustainable Practices: Our business practices are aligned with the values of environmental stewardship and respect for the land, which are central to many Indigenous cultures.

Celebrating Indigenous History Month

During Indigenous History Month, we encourage everyone to learn more about the histories, cultures, and contributions of Indigenous Peoples. It is an opportunity to reflect on the past, recognize ongoing challenges, and celebrate the resilience and achievements of Indigenous communities.

Master Care Janitorial and Facility Services remains committed to supporting Indigenous Peoples and advancing reconciliation. We believe that through respect, understanding, and collaboration, we can contribute to a more inclusive and equitable future for all. Learn more about Master Care Core Values.
