National Day for Truth and Reconciliation takes place on September 30th.

This day honours the lost children and survivors of residential schools, their families and communities. Public commemoration of this painful history and its ongoing impacts on Indigenous communities is an important part of the reconciliation process.

As health care practitioners, we encourage you to review the Indigenous Cultural Safety, Cultural Humility, and Anti-racism standard governing our practice and take a few minutes to watch this video series on delivering culturally safe care (developed jointly by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC and the BC College of Nurses and Midwives).

The BC Emergency Medicine Network office will be closed on September 30, in the spirit of reconciliation. Join us in honouring this day through personal reflection and learning, or by participating in Orange Shirt Day events across the province.
