Across Canada, September 30 marks the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The day honours Survivors of residential schools and the children who never returned home, as well as their loved ones and communities.
As part of LSTAR’S Strategic Plan and its commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives, the Association encourages Members to learn more about this day and consider participating in an event, for awareness, education and reflection.
Here is a snapshot of some public events and observances scheduled across the region:
- Western University Event on September 29, The Nature of Healing
- Atlohsa Family Healing Services, National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
- St. Thomas Public Library, National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
- City of London, National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
Orange Shirt Day also takes place on September 30. Everyone is encouraged to wear orange to honour the thousands of children who survived residential schools and remember those who did not. Learn more about the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation by clicking here.
