Show your support and Wear Orange on Sept. 29th to school, work or daycare for the Orange Shirt Campaign – Every Child Matters. The day falls on a non school day this year, so we are encouraging everyone to wear orange on September 29th. Orange Shirt day remembers the experiences of former students of Indian Residential Schools and is a commitment to ongoing reconciliation in Canada. Originating in British Columbia, the date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools. Orange Shirt Day is also an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.
