September 30, 2021 marked the first observance of a National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, following the identification of hundreds of unmarked burials at former Indian Residential School sites.
Recognizing this day was one of the first steps in a long journey towards understanding and meaningful reconciliation.
September 30th is also recognized as Orange Shirt Day, an Indigenous-led grassroots commemorative day inspired by the story of Indian Residential School Survivor Phyllis Webstad.
To honour the children who survived the Indian Residential School system and remember those who did not, RBC Place London staff will be wearing orange on September 30.
