A truth and reconciliation reading list

September 30 is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day. This day acknowledges the painful legacy of residential schools and the ongoing trauma faced by survivors of these institutions and honours survivors, families, communities, and children stolen by the violence of colonialism. These books will help broaden your understanding of truth, reconciliation, and residential institutions.

Former residential school students can call 1-866-925-4419 for emotional crisis referral services and information on other supports.
