Huron County is recognizing the importance of Truth and Reconciliation Day on September 30.

To commemorate the day county departments are offering a variety of Indigenous resources and learning opportunities, from Indigenous sources, that the public is invited to explore. Huron County Warden, Glen McNeil, says there is a Truth and Reconciliation call to action.

“There is a Truth and Reconciliation call to action and if anyone is able to visit our Huron County Museum, we have a National Day of Truth and Reconciliation film screening.”

The Huron County Library will be giving away buttons, in support of the Orange Shirt Society, at all branch locations. The Library also has multiple reading lists available in the Library catalogue and residents will be able to learn more about Truth and Reconciliation Day and find additional learning opportunities on the Library and Museum’s blogs.
Members of the public are encouraged to find additional resources on Indigenous topics on the Immigrations Partnership’s resource page: https://www.huroncounty.ca/economic-development/our-services/immigration-partnership/resources.

The County of Huron encourages all Huron County residents to take advantage of the resources listed above to reflect and increase personal awareness and understanding of Indigenous topics on September 30, the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation.
