    Commemorating Truth and Reconciliation

    On behalf of the AFP Toronto Chapter, we would like to take a moment to acknowledge and reflect upon the significance of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, which is observed on September 30 and which this year, also coincides with Orange Shirt Day. The latter is an Indigenous-led day of commemoration to raise awareness of the intergenerational impacts of residential schools and promote the idea that “Every Child Matters”.

    Both days are solemn occasions that provide us with an opportunity for deep reflection on the injustices that have occurred and continue to resonate within our society. As an organization dedicated to fostering diversity, inclusivity, and understanding, we stand committed to supporting the journey toward healing and reconciliation.

    While acknowledging the past is essential, it is equally important for us to look forward with a shared commitment to creating a more equitable, just, and harmonious future. As part of our ongoing dedication to these principles, we encourage all members of the AFP Toronto community to engage in meaningful conversations, educate themselves on the diverse voices, cultures, and experiences of Indigenous Peoples, and seek ways to actively participate in the process toward truth and reconciliation.
