BCCL would like to honor the residential school survivors and their families and to remember those who never made it home. Since May of 2021, well over 5000 bodies of Indigenous children have been recovered at former residential schools across Canada. September 30th will now be recognized and called The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

This year’s theme is “Still in This Together”, in honour of the perseverance and resilience shown by those in our movement as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
