National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
On September 30, Canada will mark the second National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. It’s a day to recognise the legacy of residential schools, and the painful, ongoing impact they have had on generations of First Nations, Inuit & Métis peoples. It is a day to honour both the Survivors and the many children lost forever.
The date of September 30 aligns with and builds on Orange Shirt Day, a grassroots and Indigenous-led initiative that raises awareness of the inter-generational impacts of residential schools and the concept of “Every Child Matters”.
