Portage College is committed to reconciliation and will observe National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on Friday, September 29th. This day will allow students, staff, faculty, and community to learn more about residential schools' history and ongoing consequences.
It's important to remember and honour those who never returned home after attending residential schools and the survivors and their families who carry the burden of this painful part of our shared history.
We encourage people to review the many resources on this web page.
Public Legal Education (PLE) along with the National Centre for Truth and Reconcilliation is hosting a series of FREE virtual adult education lunch and learns from September 25 to 29.
We encourage everyone to wear orange to honour the thousands of Survivors of residential schools.
Orange Shirt Day is an Indigenous-led grassroots commemorative day intended to raise awareness of the individual, family and community inter-generational impacts of residential schools, and to promote the concept of “Every Child Matters”. The orange shirt is a symbol of the stripping away of culture, freedom and self-esteem experienced by Indigenous children over generations.
