Background 

For years, Indigenous people have been organizing and educating Canadians on the legacies and impacts of the country’s residential school system. Since 2013, advocates have organized awareness campaigns to coincide with September 30, calling it “Orange Shirt Day”.  

Orange Shirt Day has become a national rallying point to support Indigenous people’s calls for justice and healing for all those affected by the residential school system. The day also acknowledges the pressing need for justice for Indigenous children and youth today. Indigenous children continue to endure sub-standard health, housing, education and social supports compared to all other Canadian children.  

This past June, the federal government passed legislation that made September 30 the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. 

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada called for such a day to “honour survivors, their families, and communities, and ensure that public commemoration of the history and legacy of residential schools remains a vital component of the reconciliation process”.  

CUPE is honouring this year’s National Day with two webinars for CUPE members, one in French and one in English. (For information on the French webinar, click here.)
