Truth and Reconciliation
National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is September 30th.
The day honours the families and communities of the lost children and Survivors of Residential schools across the nation. Public acknowledgement of the tragic and distressing history is the first, and vital, step in the reconciliation process.
There were 140 federally run Indian Residential Schools which operated in Canada between 1831 and 1998. The last school closed only 23 years ago.
We encourage all to take time to reflect on your part in Truth and Reconciliation using the resource below. TRO thanks member Jaymieson O'Neill and our Diversity and Inclusion Committee for putting together this resource.
