MASP Reconciliation Statement and Resources

Land Acknowledgement Statement

The Manitoba Association of School Psychologists (MASP) is located on original lands of Anishinaabe, Cree, Dakota, Dene and Oji-Cree peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation. We honour the Treaties that were signed on these lands and we acknowledge the harms of the past and present. We commit to a future of genuine partnership and reconciliation with Indigenous communities in this region by meaningful collaboration and mutually beneficial relationships.

Reconciliation Statement

The Manitoba Association of School Psychologists acknowledges the profession of psychology’s history of unethical practice and the harm it has caused Indigenous Peoples. We are committed to taking accountability and actively addressing the Truth and Reconciliation Committee’s Calls to Action. We aim to support School Psychologists in addressing educational gaps between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students, promoting the integration of culturally responsive practices, and facilitating family and community educational involvement. By sharing these resources, we hope that our community engages in self-reflection and evaluation, and takes collective, corrective action going forward.
