"The opportunity to be a part of the Indigenous People's Summer Student Program was great, I was given the chance to experience what it would be like to be in the workforce as a City employee. I was able to evolve the skills that I acquired through my training; becoming confident in my abilities to be a successful contributing team member. [...] Participation in the program has made a positive and lasting impression on me. What I am most thankful for was the chance to work with a diverse team and being able to learn about a part of my heritage through the Project of the Heart Truth and Reconciliation; it has truly touched my heart to see people of all ethnicities unite and gain an understanding of one another, opening the door for conversations of all cultures. I look forward to a bright future." Sheena Ward, Customer Service Associate, Service Support, Sustainable Development
