ORANGE SHIRT DAY
FREE TO JOIN,
NO REGISTERATION REQUIRED

September 30th is National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a day that coincides with Orange Shirt Day. It recognizes the tragic legacy of residential schools, the missing children, the families left behind and honors the survivors. By wearing an Orange Shirt, we raise awareness of how during the residential school period, personal belongings such as clothing and with it culture and freedom, were taken away from children and multiple generations after them. We encourage everyone to come together on this day to reckon with the history of the residential school system. This is a vital part of the reconciliation process in Canada as it deepens our  awareness of this history.

ABOUT RESIDENTIAL SCHOOLS

Warning: this video describes facts that may be triggering to some. 

If you would like or need to learn more about residential schools and the negative consequences on generations of indigenous people, we can help you find your way. The video here can be a first step.

We encourage everyone to educate themselves by listening to the stories of survivors and we encourage survivors to share the stories they have, to educate others and to help other survivors to feel less alone.
