Lethbridge City Council approved funding in its most recent operating budget for ongoing reconciliation initiatives.

Lethbridge is making some positives steps in terms of its efforts toward Indigenous reconciliation.
 
City Council received an update this week from the Reconciliation Lethbridge Advisory Committee.
 
Katy-Jo Rabbit sits on the committee and also manages the Saamis Aboriginal Employment Association. She says before, there was a bit of resistance when it came to hiring Indigenous people. Now, however she says more Indigenous people are finding work locally and she attributes that to the reconciliation efforts here.
 
Committee Chair, Amanda Scout, echoes those sentiments, adding the relationship between Lethbridge and its Indigenous population hasn't always been the best, but it's really good to be moving forward in a positive way.
 
In the most recent Operating Budget, City Council approved to funding support the committee's on-going Indigenous relationship building and Reconciliation based initiatives.
