National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

"Education is the key to reconciliation - education got us into this mess and education will get us out of it."
- Hon. Murrary Sinclair 

In 2021, September 30 marked 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. For years, the 30th of September has been recognized as Orange Shirt Day

In support of this important moment of reflection and learning, the university will be offering activities and opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to learn, engage, and act toward advancing reconciliation both on and off campus. A list of events and resources can be found below.

Points to consider: 

  1. Supporting Indigenous owned and operated businesses
  2. Shipping times (consider ordering ASAP to ensure it will be delivered on time) 
  3. If not Indigenous owned, does a portion (or all) of the sale support an Indigenous community or organization?
  4. In wearing this t-shirt, am I also able to commit to being an ally?
