Orange Shirt Day is September 30th, 2020

Orange Shirt Day is an opportunity to create meaningful discussion about the effects of Residential Schools and the legacy they have left behind. It is a day for survivors to be reaffirmed that they matter, as well as all of those who have been affected. It is a day to commit to honouring every child and acknowledging that every child matters.

This year, the National Center for Truth and Reconciliation is hosting a free, virtual event for youth in grades 5-12. Educators can register their class for video events to learn firsthand from Residential School Survivors, Elders, Knowledge Keepers, artists and leaders from nations and cultures across the country.
