Aboriginal Veterans Day is commemorated on November 8th

This past Thursday our senior management attended Syncrude Canada’s annual Aboriginal Community Luncheon, honouring the Aboriginal men and women for their important wartime contributions.  The First Nations, Métis and Inuit people have a long and proud tradition of military service to our country and it is estimated that more than 12, 000 Indigenous members served in the First and Second World Wars and the Korean War.

The Tuccaro Group of Companies recognizes and appreciates the selfless sacrifices made by these brave individuals who have given to their community, their nation and future generations.
