National Day for Truth & Reconciliation, also known as Orange Shirt Day, is a Canadian day of recognition of the legacy of the Canadian Indian residential school system. It has been designated a statutory holiday for some, but is an opportunity for learning for everyone.
As Canadians, we need to work together and move forward on our reconciliation journey; in the spirit of inclusion, we would like to extend this event to all our RIMS Canada chapters from coast to coast. Join us Friday, September 29 at 12pm EST for a shared panel discussion to help us understand the truth of our past to enable a better path to meaningful reconciliation going forward.
Our presenters from across the country will share a bit about our nation’s past, their truth and lived experiences as well as their perspectives that are academic, policy driven as well bias experienced from our industry. It is with this, we can work towards better and daily conversations on reconciliation, walking together.
