Wheelchair accessible.


Stop in at the Altona Branch on Saturday, September 30th to see the orange bench.

Steps Toward Reconciliation are using the orange bench to provide you with information, history, and stories from Indigenous Communities regarding their experience through Canadian History over the last 150 years. They seek authentic voices and, whenever possible, we ask our neighbours from Roseau River Anishinaabe First Nation to be those voices.

September 30th marks the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a day that coincides with Orange Shirt Day.

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation recognizes the tragic legacy of residential schools, honouring the children who never returned home, the Survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities.
