Honouring Truth and Reconciliation at U of G
Learning the truth about the effects of colonization and the residential school system and engaging in reconciliation is a shared responsibility. As a place of higher learning, we have an obligation to educate on this tragic reality of Canada’s history and to work toward addressing the ongoing colonial legacy of residential schools.
The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) established Truth and Reconciliation Week and encourages us to continue the conversations about Every Child Matters and the residential school system while honouring Survivors and their families. The NCTR offers an educational program for grades 1-12 including educational guides and virtual events. The theme for this year is Remembering the Children.
To commemorate the week, U of G will be raising the Survivors' Flag in front of the University Centre and at Champions Corner, lighting Johnston Hall in orange and lowering the flags on September 30. READ MORE HERE
