Remarks on Humber’s commitment to Truth and Reconciliation:

This session will address the importance of National Day of Truth and Reconciliation at Humber: Why is it important? What is Truth and Reconciliation Day? How can we work together to build Mino Nawendiwin (Good Relationships) at Humber? The work on the Truth and Reconciliation should fall to everyone not just one person or one group, what does this look like for you? This day also coincides with Orange Shirt Day and the purpose being to commemorate the residential school experience, honor the survivors and their families all while committing to an ongoing process of reconciliation. Through this session we open the door for dialogue and solidify our position for the important work that must be done for Truth and Reconciliation to be impactful.
