September 30, 2021 marks Canada’s first official National Day for Truth and Reconciliation which will be observed annually hereafter. The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is a federal statutory holiday which gives Canadians the opportunity to acknowledge the intergenerational harm that residential schools caused Indigenous families and communities. This day is set aside to honour those who were forced to attend residential school and were returned home forever changed by the experience as well as those children who did not return home. It is important that we recognize and honour all who have suffered this injustice. Only by doing so can we ensure that this wrong will not be repeated.
