Today is Orange Shirt Day and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a time to reflect on the ongoing trauma caused by residential schools and Canada’s painful history with Indigenous communities. Today is also a day to remember and honour the children and survivors of residential schools, their families, and communities as we work towards reconciliation.

In order to recognize this day properly, we will not be posting any new content on our social media and digital channels. We encourage you to join us in using this day for meaningful reflection and learning to better understand the challenges faced by Indigenous people historically and today.


Supported by the Bell Fund

This session, supported by the Bell Fund, will provide a baseline for understanding how taking an active stance is necessary to combat bias and discrimination. You will be introduced to the concept of allyship as a lifelong commitment to cultivating an inclusive culture where everyone can thrive and succeed. You will come away from this session understanding how to better recognize micro and other aggressions and with tools you can use to take action in the moment. This session is a first step to understanding how to be an authentic ally to colleagues who identify as Black, Indigenous, a person of colour, a member of the LGBTQ2S+ community, a person with a disability, and other systematically marginalized groups.
