National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

In July, the Canadian government voted to recognize September 30 of each year as a statutory day – the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. While every organization across the country is free to commemorate this day as they wish, we believe that the most important aspect of this specific day should be reflected in our actions every day. We know that we are not responsible for the horrific actions of past generations – but we do have a responsibility to work towards a better future, emphasizing equity and justice wherever we can. Using the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action as a guide, we – and all Canadians – must infuse these ideals into our daily lives, creating a country where Indigenous lives are a cause for celebration instead of sorrow. So on this day, we hope you join us in working toward that future.
