The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is a national holiday that recognizes and commemorates the legacy of Residential Schools and the treatment of Indigenous peoples in Canada. 

Toronto is hosting events for the national holiday where you can show your support and learn about different Indigenous cultures through workshops, art vendors, and more.

The day is also referred to as Orange Shirt Day, which recognizes the Residential School experience, and pre-dates this national holiday. There are places in Toronto where you can buy an orange shirt to support Indigenous organizations and artists.
