CONGRATULATIONS TO CANADA’S NEW GOVERNOR GENERAL
The World Indigenous Higher Education Consortium (WINHEC) and WINU (World Indigenous Nations University) sent a congratulatory message to the newly appointed Governor General for Canada, Mary Simon.
Her Excellency, The Right Honourable Mary Simon becomes the first Indigenous person to be appointed in this role in Canada. As a proud Inuk woman from Northern Quebec, she represents the kind of leadership and strength that is critical for addressing many of the issues we face as Indigenous people today.
On behalf of our membership, we shared that this appointment goes far beyond Canada reaching every corner of the Indigenous world and brings us hope for much needed change.
We wish Madam Simon all the very best and know that her work will help to illuminate the hearts and spirits of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
