Truth and Reconciliation Week
On September 30, we observe National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a day of remembrance for the injustices of the residential school system and a tribute to the strength of survivors and their descendants, as well as those who never made it home.
At The Chamber, we take this day seriously, engaging in training and reflection as part of our ongoing learning journey. Below is a selection of resources curated to facilitate reflection and learning—resources that are relevant not only today but every day.
