Rally for Reconciliation at the Colonial Building on Saturday

On Saturday there will be a rally for Reconciliation at the Colonial Building in St. John's at 2:45 p.m.

The event will be for all ages. The City of St. John’s is calling on residents to recognize Orange Shirt Day by standing in solidarity with Indigenous Peoples.

Orange Shirt Day began in 2013 to promote public awareness about the ongoing legacy of harm from residential schools in Canada.

Since then, it has become a national movement to honour survivors of residential schools and those who never made it home to their families.

The City will observe National Truth and Reconciliation Day on September 30 to honour survivors, their families and Indigenous communities, and to raise awareness about the legacy of residential schools in Canada.

All recreation facilities and community centres will be closed on Saturday, September 30, while most City offices and facilities will be closed on Monday, October 2.
