National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
September 29, 2021

September 30, 2021 marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a day to honour the lost children and Survivors of residential schools, their families and communities. We acknowledge that there is much work to be done by the Institute to further reconciliation, and would like to encourage our members to take time to reflect on our individual roles on the path towards reconciliation and decolonization.

Through the Planning Practice & Reconciliation Committee, we remain committed to decolonizing this institution and the planning practice in BC and the Yukon.

The Survivors’ Flag is an expression of remembrance, meant to honour residential school Survivors and all the lives and communities impacted by the residential school system in Canada. Each element depicted on the flag was carefully selected by Survivors from across Canada, who were consulted in the flag’s creation. Learn more at https://nctr.ca/exhibits/survivors-flag.
