Truth and Reconciliation Week

Truth and Reconciliation Week
Posted on 09/22/2021

This week from Monday September 27th until Friday October 1st is Truth and Reconciliation Week as a 5-day national event that will continue the conversations from Every Child Matters. Important conversations including the truths of the Indigenous treaties, First Nation, Métis and Inuit land claims, and the residential schools system. Focusing on Truth and Reconciliation for the week allows us to set the stage for a year of learning about, and acting on, our call to truth, healing and reconciliation across Simcoe Muskoka Catholic.  


Thursday September 30th you are encouraged to wear orange in remembrance of the residential school system and its survivors. 

Various educational activities will be ongoing this week as we acknowlege this very important time in Canadian history. 

Let us grow in  appreciation and learning about our First Nation brothers and sisters.
