National Day for Truth & Reconciliation

September 30
National Day for Truth & Reconciliation
Orange Shirt Day

September 30 is National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day. It is a day that we take time to learn, reflect and acknowledge our history of Residential Schools and the impact it has had on the survivors, families and communities. For more than 100 years, Indigenous children were taken from their homes and sent to Residential Schools; so many never made it back home. Today, we are turning our pages orange and encouraging our community to find ways to observe this day, whether it be through reflection, education or participation in an activity or event. Visit our Truth & Reconciliation page for resources in our community. We will continue to populate this year-round, because Truth and Reconciliation is a journey that we are all on together.
