National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
Tuesday, September 28, 2021 at 10:14:10 AM

The city will mark the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on Thursday, September 30, 2021.

On this day, we recognize the ongoing trauma caused by residential and day schools, and remember those who were lost, survivors and their families. It is also an opportunity to commit to the process of truth, reconciliation and justice with First Nations, Inuit and Mιtis in Toronto and across Canada, as well as take action to heal and build a better future together.

This holiday was proposed in 2015 by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, which under Action 80 called upon the federal government, in collaboration with Indigenous peoples, to establish a statutory holiday “to honour Survivors, their families, and communities, and ensure that public commemoration of the history and legacy of residential schools remains a vital component of the reconciliation process.”

This built on Indigenous community efforts, which established Orange Shirt Day in 2013 to honor “Phyllis’ story,” whose orange shirt was taken on her first day,” at residential school when she was just six years old. To mark the day, flags at City Hall and civic centres will be lowered to half-mast and the Toronto sign will be lit orange on September 30th.

Reconciliation is the responsibility of every Canadian. It means acknowledging the past and ensuring history never repeats itself by respecting Indigenous treaties and rights and letting go of negative perceptions and stereotypes to work towards solidarity. Reflect on how you can work towards reconciliation in your own life and create your own personal reconciliation plan.
