September 30, Orange Shirt Day, National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 30

September 30th, Orange Shirt Day, is a day when we honour the Indigenous children who were sent away to residential schools in Canada and learn more about the terrible history of those schools. Though the Canadian government has declared September 30 as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, Ontario will not be honouring the date as a statutory holiday, which takes place for the first time ever this year after the discovery of the remains of thousands of Indigenous children on the grounds of former residential schools nationwide. www.orangeshirtday.org
