National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

SHAPE Architecture is closed on Friday Sept 30th to observe the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This statutory day is one of the 94 Calls to Action issued by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s final report. Also Orange Shirt Day, it honours the lost children and survivors of Canada’s residential school system. It is a day for thought and reflection – by educating ourselves, we raise our awareness of the inter-generational impacts of Indigenous history, and what it means for reconciliation.

Below are links to resources shared amongst the team. Join us in developing a better understanding, learning more about the calls to action, and how you can get involved.

You can also spend the day immersing yourself at Local Events in the Greater Vancouver area.
