Canadian Museum of History- What's On in September

By Deanna Bertrend September 16, 2021

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Thursday, September 30
From 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Free admission

September 30 marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

The ongoing confirmation of unmarked burial sites at former Indian Residential Schools is a moment for deep reflection.

We stand with Indigenous peoples and acknowledge the effects these tragic and horrific events continue to have on residential school survivors, their families, and their communities. The Museum acknowledges and will continue to confront its own colonial past and to prioritize efforts that move us forward in the spirit of reconciliation.

As an institution dedicated to Canadian history, the Museum embraces the imperative of understanding the reality and legacy of the residential school system in Canada.

To continue your exploration, we invite you to visit the Grand Hall, the First Peoples Hall and the Canadian History Hall.

Admission is free, but don’t forget to book your timed ticket online before you visit on September 30. Tickets will be available as of September 24.

More information will soon be available on our website.

Superpower Dogs- CINÉ+ 

Following centuries of disruption, our Nations have struggled to assert their cultures. Our religions were banned. Our land occupied. Our languages silenced. Yet we remain. It is through family knowledge, the persistence of our art, renewed relationships with the land, and the reclaiming of spiritual traditions that our children will come to know the ways of our ancestors.

Join an immersive journey to experience the life-saving superpowers and extraordinary bravery of some of the world’s most amazing dogs.

Proof of vaccination is now required to access CINÉ+.
