Orange Shirt Day

September 29, 2017

September 30 has been declared Orange Shirt Day annually, in recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children's sense of self-esteem and well being, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters.

This is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year. Orange Shirt Day is an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.

Please join us in this national movement by wearing an orange shirt on September 30 to recognize the experience of survivors of Indian residential schools, to honour them, and to show a collective commitment to ensure that every child matters.
