Recognizing a day of reflection is just one of the calls to action the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada made nearly six years ago.
Join us today in observing Sept. 30 as the first ‘National Day for Truth and Reconciliation’ intended to honour and commemorate Indian residential school survivors and children that did not make it home.
Over the years, Thomson Rogers has worked closely with Indigenous and First Nations communities by representing victims and their families. We issued a Claim in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, on behalf of thousands of people, seeking redress for abuse in Residential Schools and were able to achieve a positive result for these victims.
This year, in honour of the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, Thomson Rogers will make a donation to the Aboriginal Legal Services to facilitate access to the justice system.
Whether it be through quiet reflection, participating in events, or sharing conversation, we encourage you to recognize the legacy of residential schools and work toward the common goal of reconciliation.
