Institutions announce plans, events for National Day for Truth & Reconciliation

Several institutions have made announcements of their plans for the National Day for Truth & Reconciliation. Shingwauk Kinoomaage Gamig (SKG) will be celebrating its grand opening as part of a Commemoration Day being held in Sault Ste Marie. Algonquin College will be hosting ceremonies, speakers, a chili and bannock lunch, and a film screening, as well as unveiling a commemorative sculpture by Barry Ranger. Medicine Hat College and the Miywasin Friendship Centre will host a public outdoor event that will include a walk led by Indigenous and community leaders, stories of resilience, a blanket ceremony, an honour song, and round dance. British Columbia Institute of Technology is launching the “We Will Always Remember” project in advance of the day. “We want Canadians to learn, reflect and dialogue, but more importantly, go beyond these activities and commit to action and advancing reconciliation in their personal and professional lives for the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation,” said BCIT Indigenous Initiatives and Partnership Executive Director Kory Wilson.
