How are you recognizing National Day for Truth and Reconciliation?
Call for September 30 Submissions
In previous years, the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) has marked September 30 as Orange Shirt Day — a time to reflect on the legacy of Residential Schools and the intergenerational trauma these institutions inflicted upon survivors, their families and communities.
This year, across the country we prepare to recognize the first-ever National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Establishing a day for awareness and reflection was one of the 94 ‘Calls to Action’ issued by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in 2015.
The MNO remains steadfastly committed to raising awareness and understanding of the history, culture and lived experiences of Métis families and communities throughout Ontario and to honouring the legacy of all Indigenous children lost and families devastated by the Residential School System.
From community observances, to simply wearing Orange, we hope you will join us in marking the inaugural National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30.
