September 30th is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation; a day of reflection, remembrance and acknowledgement to honour the lives lost, the Survivors and those forever impacted by the residential school system in Canada and fostering a commitment to truth, understanding and reconciliation.
BCFSC stands in solidarity, actively engaging in learning, commemorating and observing this significant day. We are dedicated to nurturing our relationships and strengthening our bonds by working collaboratively with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis across BC as we progress through our shared journey of reconciliation and partnership.
No matter how you choose to observe the day, the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation serves as a reminder that the work of reconciliation is ongoing. We can all contribute toward a better future by acknowledging this tragic part of Canadian history — and its ongoing impact in our communities by taking time to focus on education, reflection and listening.
