September 30, 2021 - National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is a day intended to educate and remind Canadians about the history of residential schools, honour the victims and celebrate the survivors.
NESA will be open for programming and activities on Thursday, September 30, 2021 and we encourage all program participants to wear orange in recognition of Orange Shirt Day.
Since 2013, September 30th has been observed as Orange Shirt Day across the country – a day, created by residential school survivor Phyllis (Jack) Webstad, on which Canadians wear orange to commemorate the Indigenous children who were taken from their homes and placed in residential schools.
