The annual Orange Shirt Day on September 30 opens the door to global conversation on all aspects of Residential Schools. Its goal is to create awareness of the individual, family and community inter-generational impacts of Residential Schools. It is a day for survivors to be reaffirmed that they matter, and so do those that have been affected. Every Child Matters, even if they are an adult, from now on.

Orange Shirt Day is an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools, community agencies, and all Canadians to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.
