National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Resources to Learn

On Canada’s first official National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we implore all Canadians to stop and reflect. It is our job to recognize our history as a country and to learn from it.

We’ve compiled a list of resources that you can use to do just that. Please take the time to review them, read The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s 94 Calls to Action, and let’s all try to make a better Canada for the future.
