UPP to observe National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Share

September 30, 2021 marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation in Canada. UPP will be taking time to pause, reflect, and honour the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools.

As a team, UPP will be participating in a group education session to learn more about the significance and meaning of this day. We will also take time to explore additional learning materials, including tools to understanding Indigenous perspectives in Canada.

September 30th is also Orange Shirt Day, a movement and annual day of commemoration for the survivors, victims, and their families, of the residential school system in Canada. UPP employees are encouraged to wear orange on this date to help raise awareness within their own communities.

We recognize that this is not the end of our learning journey, but rather the beginning. We will continue to evolve the ways we observe this day, as well as how we incorporate the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action into our activities as an organization.
