Canada is actively building collective knowledge about our true shared history with Indigenous
peoples, language, identity and nationhood. With national movements underway, have you found
yourself tongue-tied trying to find the right language to engage Indigenous peoples and start
meaningful conversations? Learn how to become a better ally by exploring how language can
strengthen relationships with First Nation, Métis and Inuit peoples.

Please join us on Tuesday October 15, 2019 for this interactive discussion with Victoria Grant and Bruce Lawson.

Every Child Matters - Orange Shirt Day

Submitted by Corinna Asdal on September 11, 2019 - 3:50pm

Orange Shirt Day, held on September 30th annually, is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in the spring of 2013. It grew out of Phyllis Webstad’s account of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an annual discussion on all aspects of residential schools.
