In Recognition of National Truth & Reconciliation Day, TIABC is dedicating this edition of our weekly newsletter to honour the children who never returned home and the First Nation, Métis, and Inuit survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities. TIABC understands that public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process.

We open with an updated re-post from TIABC Director Brenda Baptiste and her poignant editorial from last year's inaugural National Truth & Reconciliation Day. Also included is a "Member Spotlight" on St. Eugene Golf, Resort and Casino which features content relating to the Indigenous peoples and communities in our province.
