In early 2018 EFM took a beautifully informative course through Circa Consulting. Circa Consulting has been a tremendous help in making sure EFM is respectfully respecting the First Peoples and the land in which we operate, and EFM is always looking forward to doing more and being better....join us and help us by gathering more great knowledge from the two great books donated: The Reconciliation Manifesto: Recovering the Land, Rebuilding the Economy & In This Together: Fifteen Stories of Truth and Reconciliation.
"At CIRCA, we believe that reconciliation is everyone’s business. We don’t just help our clients to engage in reconciliation – we do it ourselves. We are Indigenous and non-Indigenous, and we believe that we’re better together.
We bring to our clients a combined 30 years of experience of working intimately with First Nations communities in BC, and in building relationships between First Nations, governments and industry."
