National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
The #NationalDayforTruthandReconciliation and #OrangeShirtDay take place this Saturday, September 30 ~ a commemorative day intended to raise awareness of the individual, family and community inter-generational impacts of residential schools.
The orange shirt symbolizes the stripping away of culture, freedom and self-esteem experienced by Indigenous children over generations. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is vital to the reconciliation process.
We commit to continuing to build meaningful relationships with Indigenous communities and support new opportunities to create social and economic value within these communities.
