Orange Shirt Day

Orange Shirt Day will be marked Saturday, Sept. 30 across Canada.  This day grew out of “Phyllis' story” of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of residential school. The orange shirt symbolizes all that was lost and the resilient spirit that remains. The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools. This non-gathered event requires nothing more than to wear any orange shirt that you have on Sept. 30 and look for opportunities to explain to people why. For more information, please call: Myron Rogal, Coordinator of the Office of Justice and Peace, (306) 659-5841 or e-mail: justpeace [at]
