National Day for Truth and Reconciliation - Educational Resources

September 30, 2021

As we join millions of Canadians to observe and honour our nation’s first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we recognize the need for the educational aspect being perhaps one of the most important ways in which we can honor this day of Truth and Reconciliation.

For us at RedBit, it is not just about one day, it is about ensuring that we arm ourselves with truth and educate ourselves and our children on matters which impact Canada and its people. So, take some time, today, tomorrow, or whenever you choose to start or continue your path of education on these matters.
