National Day For Truth and Reconciliation & Orange Shirt Day

Thursday, September 30, 2021
We would like to take this day to share with the community about National Day For Truth and Reconciliation & Orange Shirt Day and why they are important and why they should be observed as a day of self education, not only as Canadians but especially locally to understand the healing journey of our Indigenous neighbours, family, friends and our nations.
The orange shirt day gained wide spread recognition in Canada on September 30th, 2013 and the National Day For Truth and Reconciliation is founded on the same day of the year, today September 30, 2021.
