National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Today, the Bernard Betel Centre staff and Board members acknowledge National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This is our opportunity to honour the lost children and survivors of residential schools, their families and communities. We know that reconciliation must begin with remembering and reflecting on the past and the impact of intergenerational trauma caused by residential schools. Betel staff will be sharing stories, poems and reflections about truth and reconciliation throughout the day. Today we wear orange shirts to symbolize this historical injustice and remember that “Every Child Matters”.
