September 30, 2021, marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation as a federal statutory holiday. It is a direct response to Call to Action 80 of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Here at Summit Search Group, we would like to acknowledge and recognize the significance of the day.

Here are a few resources for you on September 30th, 2021.


From the Canadian Centre for Diversity & Inclusion (CCDI):
CCDI has compiled an educational resource guide which you may find helpful. In addition, on September 30, they are launching a new podcast series: Leader Talks with Anne-Marie Pham. Her first guest is Tim Fox, Vice President, Indigenous Relations & Racial Equity at Calgary Foundation. We invite you to join Anne-Marie and Tim to mark the day.


From CBC: Stories to inspire reconciliation
Hosted by Stephanie Cram and produced by Meagan Fiddler, We Know the Truth: Stories to inspire reconciliation is a new CBC Manitoba documentary that recasts Canada’s history and future through the empowerment of Indigenous Peoples. Meet the people who are challenging the history of Canada and residential schools, and creating change on their own terms. Reflect with residential school survivors and be inspired by those who are working hard to keep their culture and languages alive. Available on CBC Television and CBC Gem at 9 p.m. CT.

From the Calgary Chamber of Commerce:
A Knock on The Door: The Essential History of Residential Schools from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

  • Consider this book your ‘beginners guide’ to our shared history on why reconciliation matters including timelines, key facts and anecdotes that tell the story of the impact of residential schools. Engaging, thorough and accessible, this book also includes the full text of the TRC Calls to Action.


We sincerely hope that you find these resources and events helpful now and in the future.  #NDTR #NationalTRW
