Building Better for all of Canada: National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Building Better for all of Canada: National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

On Sept. 30, Canada honours the children who never returned home and the survivors of residentials schools along with their families and communities as part of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

It’s also Orange Shirt Day, an Indigenous-led, grassroots initiative intended to raise awareness of the individual, family and community inter-generational impacts of residential schools, promoting the concept of “Every Child Matters.”

In anticipation of the day, the Daily Commercial News has compiled a list of recent articles that discuss some harsh truths on the role construction, architecture and the industry played during that time in history but also what is being done to build better now.

A Royal Architectural Institute of Canada webinar examines reconciliation and design; a massive building at Centennial College is rooted in Indigenous teachings; and a Nunavut modular home factory is slated to be a game-changer for residents in the Far North.

These are but a few examples of the strides being made to educate the industry going forward, changing the way we build for future generations.
