This week, for the first time, we recognize September 30 as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
The Labour Council observes September 30, Orange Shirt Day, as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Among the actions our organization is taking toward reconciliation, we participated in the #94in94challenge to review and reflect on the TRC’s 94 calls to action. Thanks to the Reconciliation Thunder campaign in partnership with Circles for Reconciliation for providing this platform for learning.
Whether you have the day off or will be working as usual, I encourage you to take time to engage in learning and reflection. To my Indigenous sisters and brothers: take care of yourselves on this day. We will hold the space for you. To my settler sisters and brothers: the responsibility for learning and reconciliation lies with us.
