Today marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation in Canada. It’s a pretty momentous occasion.

Today we’re taking time to give space to Indigenous voices. We’re stepping back to listen and learn, and we invite you to do the same. We’ve compiled a list of stories, videos, courses and articles that help explain truth and reconciliation, share Indigenous perspectives, and suggest ways to learn, reflect and commemorate this day.

It’s a new national day of recognition that some provinces have also made a statutory holiday. Some of you will be working today, some of you will have the day off. All of us can read, watch, listen, learn and share on this day and any day going forward.

Regardless of what you choose to do for this inaugural National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, it is important to remember that this work and learning goes beyond a single day. And we invite you to share with us what you’re learning, what has resonated with you, and what actions you’re taking.
