Wear Orange on Friday in support of Indigenous Peoples dealing with the trauma of Residential Schools

To honour the lives of each child lost and to recognize and learn from the societal harm done by the residential school system across the country, including here in Mi’kma’ki, all CCRCE flags will be lowered to half-mast for nine days, or 215 hours, from sunrise on Monday, May 31 to sunset on Tuesday, June 8.

To raise awareness of the trauma associated with Residential schools we will be wearing orange as a sign of support and as a pledge to do more to understand the history of our First Nations Peoples.
