Truth and Reconciliation

Today we recognize the first national day for Truth and Reconciliation.

We invite everyone to reflect on the ongoing consequences of the residential school system and how we can all participate in the calls to actions from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

The Vlaad and Company team stands in solidarity with all the survivors and families that have been affected adversely due to the horrors of this system.
