National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 30, 2021

September 30, 2021 is the inaugural National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The new holiday was proposed in 2015 by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, which called upon the federal government, in collaboration with Aboriginal peoples, to establish a statutory holiday to honour Survivors of residential schools, their families, and communities, and ensure that public commemoration of the history and legacy of residential schools remains a vital component of the reconciliation process.

For information on Truth and Reconciiation Week 2021, an online event open to all Canadian schools from September 27 – October 1, 2021, please visit the website referenced below regarding this 5-day national event that will continue the conversations from Every Child Matters.
