Orange Shirt Day occurs every year on September 30. It grew out of Phyllis (Jack) Webstad’s story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of residential school. Today, it is a national initiative for First Nations, local governments, schools, and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come. Wear your orange shirt to remind everyone that Every Child Matters, and check out our related staff-picked lists in the links below to learn more.
