September 30 holds profound significance in Canada, marking the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This day is a powerful reminder of the painful history of Indigenous peoples in Canada and the urgent need for truth, reconciliation, and healing.
One of the fundamental pillars of reconciliation is the acknowledgment of the past. The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation provides a dedicated space for Canadians to confront the uncomfortable truths about Indigenous peoples' treatment and reflect on the nation's collective responsibility.
