Thank you for Supporting Orange Shirt Day

On behalf of the UBCM Executive, thank you for supporting Orange Shirt Day on September 30 at the 2016 UBCM Convention. Through the sale of orange t-shirts, we raised over $1500 for Reconciliation Canada - a charity that seeks to revitalize the relationships among Indigenous peoples and all Canadians.

Orange Shirt Day is an annual day of recognition of the harm the residential school system did to the self-esteem and wellbeing of First Nations children. Wearing an orange shirt on this day is a way to honour the survivors and remember those that did not survive.
