National Day for Truth and Reconciliation - Sept 30

On September 30, 2021, we pause to reflect on and to acknowledge the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. We grieve alongside Indigenous people everywhere, who have been dealing with the pain of the discoveries of thousands of known and unmarked graves, as well as the deep intergenerational trauma the Indian Residential School System has wrought on generations of Indigenous families. As a library system, we commit to further action to ensure that our work supports Indigenous students, faculty and staff of the University of Toronto whose research and vital work brings life, change and resurgence back into Indigenous communities.

To help mark the 1st National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, the Gerstein Science Information Centre has gathered these resources to highlight important issues in health and healthcare that remain to this day for Indigenous Peoples in Canada.

We hope that these resources will help to provide guidance on how to better reflect upon and address these systemic issues in Indigenous health research and clinical practice.
