Orange shirt sales, NDTR learning and food drive happening at MSB – Sep 26 & 27
Every year to recognize the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation (September 30), we wear orange to honour survivors and ancestors who died at residential schools, as well as families and communities who continue to be affected. We encourage members of Temerty Medicine to wear their orange shirts in the last week of September (Sep 25-29).
Orange Shirt Sale Days
Tuesday September 26 & Wednesday September 27 from 11 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. | Medical Sciences Building
Drop by MSB (across from the Starbucks) on Tuesday September 26 & Wednesday September 27 from 11:00AM – 2:00PM to pick up educational materials and purchase an orange t-shirt designed by the Ganawishkadawe Centre for Wise Practices in Indigenous Health (GCWP-IH) & Temerty Medicine Office of Indigenous Health teams.

The proceeds from sales and non-perishable food donations will go to Tungasuvvingat Inuit, an urban services provider that offers community supports for Inuit of all ages.
If you miss these days to purchase an orange shirt at MSB, we encourage everyone to visit the GCWP-IH information booth at Women’s College Hospital on Thursday September 28 from 1:00PM – 3:00PM.
