Today, we recognize the first National Day for Truth & Reconciliation in Canada. This day is not only an opportunity for reflection and acknowledgement, but it is an opportunity to continue our commitment to working towards a better future.
We encourage you to pause to honour this day, and (if you haven't already) take time out to begin learning (and unlearning) about the history of First Nations across Canada.
A great place to start is by reading the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's 94 Calls to Action. In addition, we have compiled a few more resources you may use, both today and moving forward.
• 94 Calls to Action: Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada
• National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation
• Truth and Reconciliation Learning & Prayer Guide - The Alliance Canada
• Canadian Indigenous Realities and the Canadian Church - Master Class
