September 30th 

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation 


Every year on September 30th, people across Canada wear orange and participate in Orange Shirt Day events to recognize and raise awareness about the history and legacies of the residential school system in Canada.
The Canadian government designated September 30 as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, beginning in 2021.

Benson Steel would like to acknowledge the land on which we gather, and which we operate, is part of the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. 
For thousands of years, Indigenous peoples inhabited and cared for this land, and continue to do so today.
In particular we acknowledge the territory of the Anishinabek, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Ojibway/Chippewa peoples; the land that
is home to the Metis; and most recently, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation who are direct descendants of the Mississaugas of the Credit.
We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land, and by doing so, give our respect to its first inhabitants
