Truth and Reconciliation
We acknowledge that while there are many things to celebrate about Canada, it is important to pause, reflect, and act.
We invite the community to spend some time this Canada Day reflecting on the history of our nation. Included below is a list of some of the resources to help with this reflection:
- Truth and Reconciliation Commission Reports
- Lambton County Libraries Anti-Racism Arts Project
- Indigenous Canada Online Course from the University of Alberta
- Atrocities Against Indigenous Canadians For Dummies by Jenna Rose Sands
Funding provided by the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage Celebrate Canada Program.
