National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

The Canadian Institute would like to mark the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, this September 30, 2022, to recognize the First Nations, Inuit and Métis survivors of residential schools. Acknowledging the history and the legacy that the residential school system has had on survivors, their families and their communities in an important step toward reconciliation.

The Canadian Institute would like to acknowledge the ongoing contributions by First Nations, Inuit and Métis people in shaping Canada as a diverse nation. We honour the history, culture, heritage and diversity of Indigenous peoples in Canada and recognize the strength of present-day Indigenous communities. We strive to work collaboratively with our Indigenous partners who are instrumental in building our Indigenous events, and we continue to work together toward reconciliation.
