Observing National Day for Truth & Reconciliation

September 30 marks the National Day for Truth & Reconciliation in Canada. This day recognizes the injustices of the residential school system, the resilience of survivors and intergenerational survivors, and the memories of those who never returned home. CPA Manitoba reflects on and acknowledges the impacts of Canada's past while learning how we can create change for the future in both our profession and our communities. At CPA Manitoba, our office will be closed on September 30 for a solemn day of reflection. Our staff are encouraged to use this day as an opportunity to continue on their learning journeys.   

We have compiled a list of resources to help reflect and learn today, tomorrow, and always.

If there are additional resources you would like to suggest, please contact us.
