2022 Campaign Highlights

In 2022, events to honour Orange Shirt Day included an intergenerational march hosted by UBC’s faculties of Applied Science and Land and Food Systems, a series of film screenings and discussions, hosted by the Centre in partnership with the National Film Board of Canada, and the launch of Tsqelmucwilc: The Kamloops Indian Residential School—Resistance and a Reckoning by Celia Haig-Brown. In addition, the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy at UBC led the Tiny Orange Shirt Project, resulting in a display of orange shirts in the Scarfe building at UBC.

Once again, the Centre partnered with Musqueam to install orange and white banners with the phrase ‘Every Child is Important’ in hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ and ‘Every Child Matters’ in English on campus and at Musqueam.
