Truth and Reconciliation Week
- Truth and Reconciliation Week
- Monday September 27 2021 to Friday October 1 2021
- Belleville Campus
- Loyalist College
In recognition of the history and legacy of Residential Schools in Canada, the Federal Government passed legislation designating September 30 as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. September 30 also falls within the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation’s (NCTR) Reconciliation Week, which runs from September 27, 2021, to October 1, 2021.
During this week, Loyalist College will honour the lives of the lost children by hosting events and providing resources about the legacy of Canada’s Indian Residential School System, decolonization and the inception of Orange Shirt Day itself. The College will also support First Nation students and employees who may continue to feel the intergenerational effects of trauma as a result.
