National Day for Truth and Reconciliation - September 30, 2021
The Government of Canada recently passed legislation that marks September 30 as a federal statutory holiday. Called the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, this day provides an opportunity to recognize and reflect on the legacy of residential schools in Canada. The day opens the door to global conversation about all aspects of the schools and is an opportunity bring people together in the spirit of reconciliation and honouring the experiences of Indigenous peoples. Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba will observe the day by closing its offices to provide staff with an opportunity to expand their understanding of the history of residential schools in addition to their lasting and devastating effects.

The Association wishes to recognize and raise awareness about the history and legacies of the residential school system as part of our reconciliation journey. We wish to highlight the actions of our staff, members, and companies who are working toward the same goals and ask that you share your pictures of the ways you will be commemorating the day with your family and/or staff. Send us a picture of your activities, wearing your orange shirt, and we will post on the Association's social media pages to honour and remember the experiences of survivors, communities, and families.
