National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 30th 2021 is the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation in Canada. This day honours the children who were taken from their homes and families and sent to residential schools. Many of us are learning how to feel and communicate about this painful history. September 30th is an opportunity for us to honour the children who were lost and those who survived the trauma and abuse endured in residential schools. It is an opportunity to learn the truth about this shared history and to take the necessary steps toward reconciliation.

Learn about Orange Shirt Day and access learning and teaching resources.

Check out local events on Thursday, September 30th at the Vernon Museum.

Tk’emlúps Te Secwepemc invites all to join them virtually to Drum For The Children at 2:15pm on September 30th.
