Every Child Matters: show your support on September 30th by wearing orange

The City is urging Saskatoon residents to wear an orange shirt on Wednesday, September 30th to acknowledge the harm that was done to children in Indian Residential Schools and to honour the survivors, their families, and those in unmarked graves who did not make it home. Wearing orange is a way to acknowledge the legacy of residential schools and a commitment to the process of reconciliation.

Saskatoon residents urged to wear orange shirts Sept. 30th; consider accepting ConnectR Reconciliation Challenge

For immediate release: September 11, 2020 - 11:00am

The City is preparing for Orange Shirt Day (Sept. 30) by urging Saskatoon residents, businesses, and organizations to 1) wear an orange shirt on September 30th and, 2) accept the ConnectR Reconciliation Challenge.

Orange Shirt Day is a day to mark the healing journey of residential school survivors and their families and to renew our commitment to the ongoing process of reconciliation. It’s a day for us to reaffirm that Every Child Matters. The date was chosen because it’s the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools.
