OCDSB marks National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day

On September 30th, OCDSB schools and offices marked the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day. Together, students and staff had the opportunity to learn, reflect, and remember, while honouring survivors, their families, and their communities. 


Schools came together virtually to watch an opening and closing by Monique Manatch, Traditional Knowledge Keeper, Algonquins of Barriere Lake, and a Land Acknowledgment by Director of Education Camille Williams-Taylor. Watch the videos below:




The OCDSB recognizes and acknowledges our unique responsibility and commitment to the diverse population of Indigenous students we serve. For more information about the National Truth and Reconciliation Day and Orange Shirt Day, the actions that have been taken, and supports available for Indigenous students and families, please visit our website.


Here is a look back at some of the projects, learning activities, conversations and reflections that took place across our schools in honour of this day.
