National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

National Day For Truth And Reconciliation

Beginning today and as Canada moves forward September 30th will officially mark the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

This day honours the children who never returned home and all the survivors of residential schools as well as their families as well as their communities.

Orange Shirt Day is an Indigenous-led grassroots day which is intended to raise awareness of the individual, family and community inter-generational impact of all residential schools.

It is to make us aware that “Every Child Matters” and orange shirt day is a symbol of stripping away of freedom, culture and the self-esteem which was experienced by all Indigenous children over past generations.

Across Canada there will be hundreds of activities taking place to commemorate the history and legacy of residential schools.
