On Friday, September 28th, CCRCE is encouraging our schools, families and communities to join us as we observe Orange Shirt Day (nationally observed on September 30th).

What is Orange Shirt Day?

Orange Shirt Day developed from the experience of residential school survivor Phyllis Webstad.  It grew out of Phyllis' story of having her new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the residential school, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually.
