BRANTFORD — Orange Shirt Day lands on September 30th each year. It is a time to be mindful of the experiences of those who attended residential schools in Canada, and to acknowledge the resiliency of Survivors of the residential school system.

Orange Shirt Day originated in British Columbia in recognition of a residential school Survivor whose grandmother had purchased a new orange shirt for them to wear on their first day of school; upon admission, that shirt was taken away and the Survivor never saw it again. The Orange Shirt has since been adopted as a visual representation of the things which our communities have endured throughout the legacy of residential schools and are a recognizable way for us to show our support for Survivors in their healing journeys.

The Woodland Cultural Centre released the below announcement:

“We wanted to reach out to you to let you know that our Orange Shirts are now available for volume orders.
