🧡 Orange Shirt Day
September 30th is Orange Shirt Day (National Day for Truth & Reconciliation), a day of remembrance and reflection on the legacy of residential schools in Canada and the impacts on Indigenous communities. It grew out of Phyllis Webstad’s story of losing her brand new orange shirt on her first day at residential school, and what that loss represents.
These shirts are more than just a piece of clothing. By wearing this design, you are not only honouring those impacted by the residential school system, but you are committing to educating others. You’re showing your support for truth and reconciliation, and encouraging others to engage in these essential conversations.
If you’re wearing orange this year, be sure to share using #WhyIWearOrange

The garden will be a space for people to learn about the history of the residential school system, to recognize the strength and resilience of our survivors, and to celebrate the Indigenous cultures in our province.
