National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation: Walking the Path to Reconciliation in 2021
“This year, we gained a deeper collective understanding of the devastating and ongoing impacts of Canada’s residential school system. The recognition of unmarked graves at the sites of former residential schools reopened the wounds that Survivors and their families have been tending for generations.
It also sparked a new conversation across the country as more people learn, engage, and reflect. Truth and Reconciliation Week is an opportunity to bring together people from nations and cultures across the country to continue this reconciliation journey.
In the week leading up to September 30, Orange Shirt Day, we will honour the children who were sent to residential schools and the many who never came home. We will come together to embrace the hope we see in this renewed conversation as we work to ensure the truth of this country’s history is known. Truth and Reconciliation Week would not be possible without the Survivors, the children of Survivors, Indigenous Elders, and Knowledge Keepers who continue truth-telling to advance reconciliation through education.”
