Truth and Reconciliation - This week, we are honoring National Truth and Reconciliation. This week is about two big ideas, the first is to honor the victims of Canada's Residential School System, and the second is to educate ourselves on the systemic issues and generational trauma that Indigenous peoples continue to face to this day. Throughout this week we hope you will take the time to think and reflect on Canada's past mistakes as we continue to look for ways to move forward together in harmony.

Did you know, in 2007, The Indian Residential Schools Settlement was created. This agreement was the largest legal group settlement in Canadian History. Part of this agreement was the creation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. This group works to help facilitate reconciliation for former students, their families, communities, and all Canadians.
