September 30 - National Day of Truth and Reconciliation (coinciding Orange Shirt Day)

In honour of the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, take the time to learn the truth about the impact of residential schools on First Nation, Métis and Inuit peoples and how we can all contribute to reconciliation going forward.

For SaskCulture, September 30 will be a statutory holiday for staff and the office will be closed.  SaskCulture encourages those, whether they are at home or work, to attend events, listen and learn about the impact, act on change and reconciliation, and honour those who are showing us the way, in particular the children and their families, who have been impacted by residential schools. #everychildmatters
