Truth and Reconciliation Week
The locally designed Kenora Catholic DSB Orange Shirt Day Logo.
In recognition of Truth and Reconciliation Week, September 26-30, and the second annual National Truth and Reconciliation Day on September 30, OCSTA has organized online a number of resources to provide historical background and information regarding current actions being taken at Catholic District School Boards across Ontario to foster greater awareness, understanding and respect for Indigenous people of Canada.
We are committed to ensuring that all students participate in focused learning about the histories, cultures, perspectives and contributions of Indigenous Peoples. Through Active Listening, Prayer and Right Action we journey together with our Indigenous Sisters and Brothers in a spirit of Truth and Reconciliation.
