Northern Lakes College joins the nation in recognizing September 30 as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. In an effort to increase awareness around truth and reconciliation and the legacy of residential schools, Northern Lakes College is sharing resources that include videos, podcasts, articles, and stories. In the spirit of reconciliation, we invite our students, staff, faculty, and community members to view, listen, and share.”
