Since 1996, June 21 has been recognized as National Indigenous Peoples Day. At Valoris for Children and Adults of Prescott-Russell, this is a great opportunity to highlight the invaluable contribution of Indigenous People to Canada's cultural diversity, to recognize the achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people, and to renew an inclusive service approach.

At Valoris, accessibility to services is of primary importance. This is why the organization aims to offer services to people who need them with the greatest respect for their origin, cultural practices, spiritual beliefs, sexual orientation or their language.

"As an organization working in the human services sector, we are approaching National Indigenous Peoples Day as an opportunity to reaffirm our values ​​of commitment, professionalism, caring, interpersonal skills, and competency by promoting cultural diversity in our community. We reaffirm, both within our organization and the community of Prescott-Russell, that at Valoris we work hard every day to facilitate the integration of the people we support in the community, " says Hélène Fournier, Executive Director.

On June 21, Valoris will mark National Indigenous Peoples Day through its social networks. Valoris invites the residents of Prescott-Russell to share the published content.

Many Prescott-Russell families are currently struggling with problems due to flooding. We join our efforts to those of our community partners to help Prescott-Russell residents who are in need.
