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.


This interactive session will offer a look at the history behind systemic racism and use data to build an understanding of discrimination in the entertainment sector broadly. It will explain the pitfalls of intent vs. impact of actions. It will explore tactical suggestions for eliminating racism on sets and in other working locations.
