The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS) observes National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, Saturday, September 30, 2023.
This is a national day to commemorate the history and ongoing trauma caused by residential schools and to honour those who were lost and the survivors, families and communities who continue to grieve. It is to ensure that public commemoration of the history and legacy of residential schools remains a vital component of the reconciliation process.
In observing this day, it is an opportunity to consider what each of us can do as individuals to advance reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and recommit to understanding the truth of our shared history, to accept and learn from it and in doing so, help to create a better country, and a more inclusive British Columbia.
