Survivor’s Flag, orange lights on campus in recognition of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

In recognition of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, The Survivors’ Flag will be flown over University Hall starting Sept. 25.

The Survivors’ Flag is an expression of remembrance, meant to honour residential school survivors and all the lives and communities impacted by the residential school system in Canada. Each element depicted on the flag was carefully selected by survivors from across Canada, who were consulted in the flag’s creation. 

Also in recognition of the day, the Indigenous Circle and the exteriors of Hamilton Hall and University Hall will light up orange on the nights of September 25-30 to honour the children who did not come home from residential schools, survivors and their families.

They can be located using this interactive campus map.
