Orange to honour survivors of residential schools. These facilities, which operated from the 1880s to 1996, were an attempt by the government and churches to assimilate First Nations, Inuit and Metis children into Euro-Canadian culture. Essentially, they were designed to “take the Indian out of the child.”  In 1973, six-year-old Phyllis Webstad excitedly wore an orange shirt on her first day of residential school. Unfortunately, the shirt was quickly taken from her and she was told not to speak her language. At that time, Webstad didn’t understand why she was being treated this way. Since then, the colour orange has held special significance for Webstad, who launched Orange Shirt Day in 2013 to raise awareness of Canada’s history of residential schools.

Reminder to wear an orange shirt on Friday in recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children’s sense of self-esteem and well-being, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters.
