National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

This year, September 30 will mark Canada’s first official National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a newly designated day of remembrance to honour victims and survivors of Canada’s Indigenous residential school system. The federal government announced the statutory day in July 2021, which will fall on what has been known as Orange Shirt Day.

Please see the infographic that has been created to help you navigate how to talk to your students about National Day for Truth and Reconciliation before, on, and beyond September 30th. Remember that reconciliation is not just one day! It’s a continuous learning/unlearning journey, and a commitment to meaningful action and relationship building.
