National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Truth & Reconciliation

About National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is recognized on September 30th in Canada. This is a federal statutory holiday, which endeavors to acknowledge the truth of the historical and ongoing trauma that residential schools and colonialism have caused Indigenous individuals, families and communities. On this day we commemorate those who have been affected by this injustice; It is also a time for reconciliation, which is a commitment to fostering respectful relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
