Truth and Reconciliation Day
Fun Events Sept 29 – Oct 1st are happening In & Around Oakville this weekend. On September 30th, Canada observes the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. It’s a time to honour and celebrate Indigenous cultures, reflect on past atrocities and commit to learning and understanding. Together let’s say ‘Niin indaakemaaga‘ in Ojibwe as a sign of friendship and unity on this journey.
