Re-imagine Canada Day

Updated: Jan 18, 2022

Canada has a long colonial and oppressive history with Indigenous Peoples. As we continue our journey of reconciliation, let us use Canada Day as a platform to stand and take action in solidarity with our Indigenous neighbours. To do this, re-imagine your celebratory budget. Take a second and think about how much money you’d spend on a typical Canada Day. Re-imagine your fireworks budget, food, decorations, drinks or other party supplies. There are many Indigenous charities and organizations that will use your money to directly support Indigenous communities.

Where to donate to support survivors of residential schools:

  1. Indian Residential School Survivors Society (IRSSS) -

  2. Legacy of Hope Foundation -

  3. Orange Shirt Society -

  4. True North Aid -

  5. First Nations Child and Family Caring Society -

  6. Reconciliation Canada -
