Truth and Reconciliation Day – Leger

September 29th, 2023

Since 2021, September 30 has been the National Truth and Reconciliation Day in Canada, honouring Indigenous children who never returned from residential schools and supporting their families and communities. From September 22 to 24, 2023, we surveyed Canadians to understand their attitudes and actions they will be taking on this day.

Some of the key highlights of our survey about Truth and Reconciliation Day include…

Canadians Feel They Are Less Aware of Indigenous Peoples’ History

  •  24% of Canadians think they are much more aware of the history of Indigenous peoples in Canada compared to 4 or 5 years ago, while 39% think they are a little more aware, 26% think they are no more or less aware and 4% are less aware.
  •  Comparing this year’s survey results to the 2022 survey on the same topic, fewer Canadians think they are a little more aware (42% in 2022 vs 39% in 2023) or much more aware (30% in 2022 vs 24% in 2023).
