The 2024 Orange Shirt Design Contest is Now Closed!

The orange shirt society

Commemorating the residential school experience, witnessing and honouring the healing journey of the Survivors and their families. EVERY CHILD MATTERS.

At OSS, we believe you can support Reconciliation every day in many ways.


The orange shirt has become a symbol of hope, reconciliation and a commitment to a better future. By wearing an orange shirt on September 30th, you make a statement to support reconciliation and commit to the enduring truth that EVERY CHILD MATTERS.


The Orange Jersey project is designed to encourage athletes to support Truth and Reconciliation by learning and advocating in a team environment.


Community events serve as important opportunities to spread awareness and inspire actions to support reconciliation.


Support OSS programs and initiatives to honor residential school Survivors and the children who never returned home.
