Statement for the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, Sept. 30

On September 30, we remember, honour and grieve the 150,000+ First Nations, Inuit and M├ętis children who were forcibly taken from their families and sent to residential schools. We reflect on the tragic legacies and far-reaching impacts of the residential school system on Indigenous individuals, families and communities, and on the need to develop an equitable and culturally safe healthcare system for Indigenous people.
