National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is to remember the lost children, honour the survivors, and acknowledge the impact of residential schools on Indigenous people, their families, and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process.
“On September 30th, I invite the Canadian squash community to take time to learn more about the residential school system in Canada and its impact on Indigenous people. Participate by attending an event either in-person or online, or wear orange in honour of Orange Shirt Day and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation,” stated Sandra Thompson, President of Squash Canada.
