Truth and Reconciliation Week

About this event

This year, we’re proud to announce that Every Child Matters is growing from a single day to a full week of Truth and Reconciliation programming. Last year’s unprecedented online event was attended by over 500,000 students, teachers, and general public attendees. Together, we can build on the success of Every Child Matters and continue the conversation on First Nations treaties, Métis and Inuit Land Claims, and the residential school system.

When?

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Truth and Reconciliation Week will take place virtually the week

of September 27 through October 1, 2021.

What can I expect?

The programming will feature short videos created by Indigenous storytellers, followed by conversations with Elders, Knowledge Keepers, Survivors, and the children of Survivors of residential schools. The videos will be supported with classroom activities for students. Throughout the week we’ll share artistic and cultural performances by First Nations, Métis, and Inuit artists. There will also be a moving tribute to the Missing Children that never returned home from the residential schools.

Tentative Program:

Day 1 - Land and Treaties

Day 2 - Languages and Culture

Day 3 - Truth and Reconciliation
