Truth and Reconciliation Week

Sep 27 to Oct 1 • 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

Online Virtual Event

This year, Every Child Matters is growing from a single day to a full week of Truth and Reconciliation programming.

More Information

Join this event along with other students, teachers, and the general public to help continue the conversation on First Nations treaties, Métis and Inuit Land Claims, and the residential school system.

The programming will feature short videos created by Indigenous storytellers, followed by conversations with Elders, Knowledge Keepers, Survivors, and the children of Survivors of residential schools. The videos will be supported with classroom activities for students. Throughout the week, they’ll share artistic and cultural performances by First Nations, Métis, and Inuit artists. There will also be a moving tribute to the Missing Children that never returned home from the residential schools.
