Orange Shirt Day at Hillcrest Park in the City of Thunder Bay is a meaningful event.

Taking place from 9:00 am to 10:30 am, the event begins with the significant act of honouring the Residential School Survivors flag at Hillcrest Park. This gesture serves as a symbol of remembrance and recognition for the survivors of the Residential School system, acknowledging their experiences and resilience.

The City is installing a "pop-up" reflective space at the flagpole site that will be constructed in the park next summer. The community is invited to come and experience the site as a pop-up space this year.

This event promotes education, understanding, and empathy, contributing to the ongoing process of reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities in Thunder Bay and beyond.
