National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 30, 2021 @ 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 30, 2021 marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

We honour the lost children and Survivors of residential schools, their families, and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process. All are encouraged to wear the colour orange to raise awareness of the very tragic legacy of residential schools and honour the thousands of Survivors.

Everyone is welcome to come by the JCC to participate in the creation of a giant dream catcher. Be part of making this communal Indigenous symbol while watching short videos, listening to testimonies of residential school survivors, and learning about this dark era of Canadian history.
