National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
As part of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's 94 Calls to Action, September 30 was offically recognized by the federal government in 2021 as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The day serves as a memorial to those lost in the legacy of the Residential Schools, a recognition of the Survivors, and a chance to acknowledge the deep and lasting pain and damage these schools inflicted on Indigenous children and families.
It is also a reminder to recommit to the path of Truth and Reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, to acknowledge the full truth of our histories and the impact that it continues to have today, and to find a new way forward in full cooperation with one another.
