The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) is holding its BC National Event in Vancouver from September 18 to 21, 2013. Come and share your truth about the schools and their legacy. Witness and celebrate the resilience of Aboriginal cultures!
Reconciliation Canada will host activities before and after the TRC BC National Event. The City of Vancouver is the first municipality in Canada to proclaim June 21, 2013 to June 20, 2014 as the Year of Reconciliation.
*Each TRC National Event is dedicated to one of the Seven Sacred Teachings – love, respect, courage, honesty, wisdom, humility and truth.
