1. CAIMS Statement on the Discovery of Unmarked Graves at Former Residential Schools

The Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematical Society (CAIMS) is deeply saddened by the continued discovery of unmarked children’s graves at Canadian Indian residential schools. We feel deep sympathy with the affected families from all Indigenous communities of Canada. We, as a society, are committed to working towards truth and reconciliation with the Indigenous peoples of Canada.

La Société canadienne de mathématiques appliquées et industrielles (SCMAI) est profondément attristée par la découverte continue de victimes oubliées des pensionnats autochtones du Canada. Nous ressentons une sympathie profonde pour les familles touchées de toutes les communautés autochtones du Canada. En tant que société, nous reconnaissons que nous sommes tous responsables de partager en cette réalité afin de faire notre part pour participer à la réconciliation avec les peuples autochtones du Canada.
