On September 30th, we come together to observe the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This significant day is dedicated to honouring the children of residential schools who never returned home, the resilient survivors, the families, and our communities.
The impact of residential schools and the tragedies that unfolded reverberate across generations. This trauma manifests in various ways within Indigenous communities, including the erosion of identity and culture and social and economic challenges such as homelessness, mental health, and addiction issues.
We unite to Honour the Day. Reconciliation starts with bearing witness to the Truth. Together, we aim to foster healing and growth within our community by acknowledging our shared history.
