September 30th marks the 3rd National Truth & Reconciliation Day, a day where Canadians reflect upon the experiences and history of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities in Canada, and to acknowledge, reflect, and learn about the injustices they faced through the residential school system and the ways it continues to affect Indigenous Peoples in Canada today.
We wanted to provide some resources with ways you can participate in this day, either in-person (events listed for Thunder Bay, ON) or through virtual or self-paced learning options.

Remember, this day is just a reminder of the learning (and unlearning) of Canadian history that we should be aware of everyday.
We hope to see you all with your orange shirts at school tomorrow and on Saturday Sept 30 for National Truth & Reconciliation Day!
