Truth and Reconciliation Week 2023

Bishop’s University, Champlain College – Lennoxville, Université de Sherbrooke, Cégep de Sherbrooke and Cégep de Granby invite their communities as well as the general public to take part in a series of activities to raise awareness about the present and past realities of Indigenous People from September 25 to 30, and to participate in a large commemorative walk on the occasion of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, also known as “Every Child Matters”.



The program of activities will take place on five campuses. To consult the program:

Commemorative walk

Truth and Reconciliation Week will culminate on September 30 with the annual Every Child Matters Walk organized by Bishop’s University. The college and university communities, as well as the general public (including elementary and high schools), are invited to gather at 11 a.m. in front of Sherbrooke City town hall, on Wellington Street. The walk is scheduled to start at noon. The march will start on Wellington St. and end at the Marché de la gare.

Tools for raising awareness

The Pôle régional en enseignement supérieur de l’Estrie (PRESE) encourages the general public and schools to consult its reference directory, which provides access to thousands of works and educational tools to increase knowledge about the issues experienced by First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities. The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation also offers several resources for schools.
