National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Since 2013, September 30th has marked Orange Shirt Day, in recognition of the harm of Residential schools and as an affirmation of the commitment to making every child matter. Show your support by wearing orange today.
