Friday, September 27, 2019
Rocky View County has proclaimed September 30, 2019 as Orange Shirt Day, to honour Residential School Survivors, their families and communities.
Orange Shirt Day is being celebrated across Canada and beyond as a day to commemorate the Survivors of Residential Schools, to remember those who did not survive, and to reaffirm our commitment to ensuring a better future for all children.
This year marks the fourth Orange Shirt Day in Alberta, joining with communities across Canada who have commemorated the day since 2013. It provides an opportunity to discuss all aspects of Residential Schools and to help continue the work of Reconciliation.
