National Day of Truth and Reconciliation


Dear Robson Hall,

This September 30th, 2021 is Canada’s first National Day of Truth and Reconciliation. This day is a day to remember and honour all residential school survivors and recognize the profound and tragic impact that residential schools had on not only those who attended but their families and communities as well. This is an impact that has carried on from generation to generation and continues to be felt today. 

September 30th also marks Orange Shirt Day. Orange Shirt Day is a day to send the message loud and clear that “Every Child Matters.” It is a day to recognize the experiences and tragedies of the children who attended residential schools and honour the survivors. As the story of the Orange Shirt Day states “On this day of September 30th, we call upon humanity to listen with open ears to the stories of survivors and their families and to remember those that didn’t make it.” (

The Manitoba Indigenous Law Students Association (MILSA) is calling on the Robson Hall Community to show their support and recognize that Every Child Matters. On September 30th wear your orange shirts and stand not only with MILSA but with all Indigenous People. 

Those wearing orange are asked to share their photos with MILSA to be featured on MILSA’s social media pages. Photos can be sent via email to or via Instagram @milsa.robsonhall.
