At work

Whether it’s a government department, large corporation, or small business, many of our supporters are starting Moose Hide Campaigns from their place of work. Over 64,000 moose hide pins were distributed to a diverse variety of public and private sector organizations in 2020-2021.

450 staff from Canada’s largest janitorial service provider Bee-Clean Building Maintenance are now proudly wearing Moose Hide Campaign pins, taking part for Indigenous Peoples Day.

The office can be a great environment in which to build awareness and start the conversation on these vital issues – both with internal staff and external partners, clients, customers or supporters. Introducing the Campaign can also be an engaging way to train staff on diversity and inclusion.

How to get involved

  • Wear and share the moose hide pin

    Order pins and share them with your colleagues. Send them with your mail-outs, display them in your shop window or at your front counter, make sure your staff members wear them when they’re with clients. Find your own way of wearing and sharing. You can order as many pins as you need right here. They’re completely free, including vegan options.
  • Campaign Day

    Take part in our annual day of action, conversation, and ceremony. Stream the event live with your colleagues or attend in person. Encourage those you work with to share the pin and take a free workshop. Host your own event or talking circle – or join the day-long nationwide fast. Our next Campaign Day will take place in mid-May 2022. Register now.

Campaigning during the Pandemic

Although campaigning activities are currently more restricted, they’ve never been more important. Domestic violence rose as much as 30% in some parts of Canada during the first lock-down. So, keep sharing the moose hide mission and message – but make sure you’re following local COVID-19 health and safety guidelines when organizing face-to-face campaigning.

cross sector engagement

Halifax Regional Fire & Emergency in Nova Scotia embraced the Moose Hide Campaign, ordering 1,000 moose hide pins and wearing them on their uniforms for Mi'kmaq History Month.

BC Government Support

Public servants from all 20 BC Government ministries, from the legislative and judicial branches, and from various BC Crown Corporations, commissions, agencies, tribunals and other offices and departments took part in Moose Hide Campaign Day 2021 from all over British Columbia.

As a part of their participation, the BC Ministry of Transportation created this promotional video with clips from ministry employees talking about why they support the Moose Hide Campaign.
