National Truth and Reconciliation Day

Today at EllisDon, we are reflecting on National Truth and Reconciliation Day. In an effort to ensure that the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools are never forgotten, we will observe a moment of silence at noon EST today to honour the survivors of the Residential School system and remember that Every Child Matters.EllisDon recently raised funds for The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund at EllisDon’s Stir It Up Event, with all proceeds going towards the organization which aims to build cultural understanding and create a path toward reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples. The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund is hosting a discussion to explore this new day of reflection, the significance of September 30, what this means for reconciliation in Canada, and how we can participate meaningfully.
