Please join us Monday, September 30, 2024 as we recognize the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Event details to follow in the coming months.


In 2021, September 30th marked Canada鈥檚 first official National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a newly designated day of remembrance to honour victims and survivors of Canada鈥檚 Indigenous residential school system. For years, the 30th of September has been recognized as . 

In support of this important moment of reflection and learning, the university will be offering activities and opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to learn, engage, and act toward advancing reconciliation both on and off campus.  

An important aspect of Truth and Reconciliation work is committing to your own awareness and self-education of the complex histories as well as ongoing issues facing Indigenous Peoples across Turtle Island. With this, we encourage you to use the below resources as well as sources of information you discover on your own, to learn more, each day. Please read and sign the commitment to reconciliation
