The first recognized National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is a day for solemn reflection on the systemic harm Indigenous Canadians have received, but also marks a positive step towards a hopeful future.
This day shows change is possible. We all have a role to play creating a more just Canada where healing is supported and equality is actively pursued. Canada is stronger when we grow together and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is a day for all Canadians to be part of moving from this dark past to a brighter future.
