Supporting Reconciliation on Orange Shirt Day


Orange Shirt Day is an annual monument for Indigenous peoples to rebuild community, collectively share their residential school experience and continue their journey toward healing and reconciliation. It is also an opportunity for all Canadians to hear survivors' stories and stand in solidarity with Indigenous nations across the country.

Orange Shirt Day

Most importantly, it is a call for Canada to reflect on its colonial history, acknowledge the damage caused by residential schools and other assimilationist policies — and commit to a just future that recognizes the needs, rights, and contributions of all First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples.

At MNP, we stand in solidarity with Indigenous nations across the country. In addition to wearing an orange shirt on September 30, 2020, we invite you to learn more about residential schools and the impact they had on Indigenous people in Canada.

Take part in virtual commemoration events.

Read stories of residential school survivors.
