To mark the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we are delighted to state our commitment to recognizing Indigenous cultures. As part of this pledge, we have commissioned a remarkable painting this year, created by esteemed artist Frank Polson.

Born in 1952 in Ville-Marie, Frank Polson is a member of the Algonquin Long Point First Nations community (Winneway, Temiscamingue). Working with acrylic, he has devoted the last 17 years of his life to developing an approach that celebrates Native tradition, yet is resolutely contemporary. His works, painted in traditional “Woodland” style, have been exhibited in major galleries in Canada and Europe.

This painting will hold a place of honour in our Montreal offices, adding an exceptional artistic creation to our work environment while serving as a constant reminder of our commitment to fostering an inclusive and reconciled Canada.

Addenda has also expressed its commitment within investment strategies, adding Indigenous economic opportunities to its Fixed Income Impact Fund’s focus areas. We seek to target activities that support Indigenous social or economic development, infrastructure, and businesses, while placing Indigenous communities, cultures and values first.

Together, we can contribute to a more harmonious and respectful future for all as we continue to support equity and inclusion.
