If you or a family member attended a Residential School, travel and accommodation funding is available for those who would like to attend the Truth and Reconciliation Event in Vancouver (Sep 16th to Sep 22nd). Closing date for applications is Wednesday at 4pm, so I’d recommend faxing!
Below is a link to the information and application form. Please note that the fax number is on the information form.
A small group of Mt Currie Survivors will be attending from the 21st till the 22nd of September and participating in the 2/4km Walk for Reconciliation on the Sunday. The elder’s bus travelling from Mt Currie to Vancouver is full, however anyone who is willing and able to join the Reconciliation Walk is welcome to!
