  • Each year, September 30 marks the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day


    The day honours the children who never returned home and Survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process.

     

    Orange Shirt Day is an Indigenous-led grassroots commemorative day intended to raise awareness of the individual, family and community inter-generational impacts of residential schools, and to promote the concept of “Every Child Matters”.  The orange shirt is a symbol of the stripping away of culture, freedom and self-esteem experienced by Indigenous children over generations

     

    There were 140 federally run residential schools in Canada that operated between 1867 and 1996. Survivors advocated for recognition and reparations and demanded accountability for the intergenerational impacts of harms caused. Their efforts culminated in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission releasing its final report detailing 94 calls to action. The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is a direct response to Call to Action 80, which called for a federal statutory day of commemoration.

     

    Huskies we encourage you to focus your learning on this National Day for Truth and Reconciliation to explore and amplify the rich and diverse cultures, voices, experiences and stories of the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples.

     

    Please ensure you walk through the atrium today to see our collective pledge to understand the impact of colonialism and address those wronged by systemic oppression.
