National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) put forward creating a statutory holiday to help public commemoration and awareness of the damaging and intergenerational effects the residential school system had and continues to have as one of its 94 calls to action.

Ottawa has set aside Sept. 30 as the first national day to reflect on truth and reconciliation and the legacy of residential schools.
