National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Sask Sport is committed to recognizing National Day for Truth and Reconciliation through education, knowledge and sharing. 

The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation recognizes and remembers those who were lost to the legacy of the residential school system, honours survivors and acknowledges the lasting harm and pain that these schools brought to Indigenous children, their families and communities. Today, is an opportunity to participate in and contribute to reconciliation. 

Sask Sport and the amateur sport community can come together in the spirit of reconciliation to provide program support and training that work to advance Indigenous athletes, coaches and volunteers. Sask Sport will continue to commit to partnerships with Indigenous community groups to advance understanding and shared experiences. The Indigenous Coaches and Officials Program has spent the last decade and half working to bridge gaps. Learn more about the program and how its work contributes to Truth and Reconciliation.  

Contributions and efforts of reconciliation will only help to enrich Saskatchewan communities.  

For the past several years, Sask Sport staff have worn their orange shirts to honour survivors, commemorate those who attended residential schools, remember those who never returned home and reaffirm that “Every Child Matters”. It is also a symbol of the commitment to Truth and Reconciliation that Sask Sport will continue in 2022 and beyond.
