National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 30th is the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation in Canada. This federal statutory holiday gives us a chance to recognize and commemorate the intergenerational harm that residential schools caused to Indigenous families and communities, and to honour those who have been affected by this injustice.

We encourage Fellows of the Academy and the broader engineering community to learn about and reflect on this country’s past and how we can contribute to reconciliation in Canada.
