CUTA observes National Day of Truth and Reconciliation

Published September 30, 2021.

The Canadian Urban Transit Association, along with many of its members, is observing the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation.

“Today is a day to reflect upon the history, legacy, and impact of Canada’s residential school system,” said Marco D’Angelo, CUTA’s president. “It’s also a day for all of us to rededicate ourselves to meaningful reconciliation with Indigenous peoples.”

CUTA itself will work to make itself more inclusive of Indigenous transit providers later this year, including offering two years’ free membership. The recently-announced rural transit fund will provide new mobility options for many Indigenous communities, and CUTA is committed to welcoming them to the transit family.
