Truth and Reconciliation Day

Today we join Canadians across the country in honouring the survivors of residential schools, their families, and communities for Truth and Reconciliation Day. We pledge to act to support Indigenous communities’ calls to action on reconciliation, and particularly those in support of Indigenous mental health, healing, and well-being.

Along with wearing orange shirts to stand in solidarity with residential school survivors and their families, CMHA-YRSS will be participating in a workshop today led by the Barrie Area Native Advisory Circle (BANAC) . This time of learning will provide insight into the past and actionable strategies for the future, as we as individuals and as an organization pledge to learn, remember, honour and act.
