EDIN’s National Day of Truth & Reconciliation in Victoria Park

EDIN’s National Day of Truth & Reconciliation in Victoria Park
September 28 to October 3, 2022

To create awareness and commemorate National Day for Truth and Reconciliation in downtown Regina, members from the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Network will be setting up “Every Child Matters” flags and signs throughout Victoria Park starting at 8am on September 28th. A SnapChat filter will also be created for social media users to utilize and commemorate in their own way using photos taken in the downtown area.

The signs and flags are free for anyone to take home and will be available until October 3rd. The SnapChat filter is free to anyone who has a SnapChat account and will be available from September 28th-30th.

Since May 28, 2021, when news broke of the recovered remains of 215 children buried at the site of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Canada have been expressing widespread grief in person and across social media.

The announcement of the 215 children was a starting point for many who were learning about this part of our history for the first time but based on the stories shared for years by Survivors of residential schools, we know this was only the beginning. The number “215” was and remains a symbol of the start of these recoveries and this movement.

Each year, September 30th marks the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The day honours the children who never returned home and Survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process.
