Abstract

As the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation approaches on September 30, community groups are preparing to honour the children who never returned home from and survivors of residential schools, their families and communities.

The Government of Canada established the statutory holiday in 2021 in response to Call to Action 80 from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. Call to Action 80 stipulates that "public commemoration of the history and legacy of residential schools remains a vital component of the reconciliation process."
