National Day for Truth and Reconciliation 2023

September 30 marks the third #NationalDayforTruthandReconciliation and #OrangeShirtDay. As we take part in sport and physical activity across Turtle Island, we need to recognize the caretakers of the land where we live, work and play. Above all, we must recognize and respect Indigenous peoples’ connection and kinship to the land. 

At Canadian Women & Sport, we commit to making changes in and through our work in the sport system, starting with the five calls to action related to sport in the report published by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: My ReconciliACTION Plan – example for sports and
reconciliation (87-91).

Events Canadian Women & Sport Staff are Attending

Canadian Women & Sport staff are using the time around #NationalDayforTruthandReconciliation to participate in events across the country to foster our responsibility for a more equitable Canada. We’re sharing these events for others, who are looking to continue their learning.

One of the many great, free resources available is the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation Lunch & Learns. These FREE virtual lunch and learn sessions are designed to facilitate learning for Canadians on topics related to Truth and Reconciliation.
