National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
September 30, 2021
September 30th is National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
For over 150 years First Nations, Inuit and Métis Nation children were taken from their families and communities to attend school. These schools were often located long distances from their homes. Over 150,000 children were taken to Indian Residential Schools and many of them never returned. The last Residential School in Canada closed in 1996.
Below are some resources to learn more about the Residential Schools and events happening in the region and online.
