National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
September 30 marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. 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.
