Past Events

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 29: Orange Flag Raising alongside Canadian Flag.

Thank you to all departments, agencies and crown corporations who participated from coast to coast to coast. We invite you to email your photos to the National Chair’s Office

This year, the National GCWCC is partnering with Natural Resources Canada’s Circle of Nations, the Division responsible for engagement with Indigenous Peoples, to raise an orange flag alongside the Canadian flag. The Chair and Co-Chair invite all federal organizations to raise an orange flag, to highlight opportunities to support First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and organizations through the GCWCC. Imagine the impact if each federal organization raised a flag at just one of its sites!
