National Day of Truth and Reconciliation

Posted on September 28, 2023

This Saturday, September 30 marks National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a designated day of remembrance to honour the children who never returned home and survivors of Canada’s Indigenous residential school system. We, as your local government, are dedicated to gaining a deeper understanding and encourage our community members to as well.

Here are a few ways to engage meaningfully:

Wear Orange

2023 marks the 10th anniversary of Orange Shirt Day (September 30), an Indigenous-led, grassroots movement that honours both residential school survivors and commemorates those who did not make it home. Wearing orange on September 30 honours the resilience and experiences of Indigenous Peoples and affirms a commitment that every child matters.
