National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Today marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a time to pause, reflect and remember the atrocities that occurred to Indigenous Peoples – mostly children – at residential schools across the country. It’s also a time to listen to and honour survivors, their families and communities.

Please see and share the video message on NDTR below from Lyle Daniels, who we welcome to BTA as our new, full-time Community and Indigenous Director.

We encourage you to participate meaningfully and to learn more, here:
