September 30 marks the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The intent of this day, which is also Orange Shirt Day, is to provide Canadians the opportunity to recognize and observe the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools.

The City wishes to support meaningful reflection on the history and legacy of residential schools, and to honour Indigenous communities, family and survivors through the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
