National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 30 is National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a time for transparent education and to think deeply about reconciliation. It is an opportunity for Canadians to recognize and reflect on the lasting impact of our country’s colonial history. This date is also Orange Shirt Day, a time to reflect on the injustices of the residential school experience, as well as honour those who didn’t make it home, the survivors and their families.

In 2022, SAIT cancelled classes and encouraged students and employees to spend the day learning and participating in events on campus and throughout Calgary. SAIT hosted a discussion panel featuring students, employees and Indigenous community members to explore the necessity of truth and reconciliation. Watch the recording on SAIT’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Training page.
