Orange Shirt Day

The TRC report has 94 Calls to Action that will help us as Canadians come to terms with events of the past in a manner that overcomes conflict and establishes a respectful and healthy relationship among people going forward. One of the Calls to Action, specifically #80 calls us to honour survivors, their families and communities by ensuring the public commemoration of the history and legacy of residential schools. Orange Shirt Day is an opportunity for all of us to respond to this Call by wearing Orange to honour Indian Residential School Survivors, their families and their communities. Please join us as an Indian Residential School Survivor shares their personal story. Afterwards we invite guests to stay and connect over refreshments.
