How to follow CBC's coverage of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
CBC News chief correspondent Adrienne Arsenault will host special coverage of events starting at 12:30 p.m ET
On Friday, Canada will mark the second annual National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. It's a time to remember children who died while being forced to attend church-run and government-funded residential schools, those who survived and made it home, and the families and communities still affected by the lasting trauma.
CBC has an extensive lineup of Indigenous-led original programming showcasing First Nations, Métis and Inuit perspectives and experiences across all platforms, including a live special.
Here's how to follow the events on all CBC platforms:
- A one-hour commemoration ceremony in Ottawa will begin at 1 p.m. ET. This special event honours residential school survivors, their families and their communities, and includes a commemorative program from the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation in association with APTN.
- CBC News chief correspondent Adrienne Arsenault will host special coverage of the events starting at 12:30 p.m. ET on CBC, CBC Gem, CBC News Network, CBCNews.ca and the CBC News App.
- On CBC Radio One and CBC Listen, Falen Johnson will host the live coverage, beginning at 1 p.m.
- CBC.ca will have regular updates and live stream the events.
