Now more than ever before we need to ensure we continue to deepen our understanding of the truth and take positive action towards reconciliation. With the high level of interest in raising Every Child Matters flags, and the current barriers to accessing them including availability and affordability, we are now offering these on our non-profit outdoor learning store. As a charity supporting outdoor learning, we see these as an icon to be displayed outdoors to help ensure the important lessons and conversations we are having today will continue on.

These flags are 36″ x 72″ (standard size flag) and come with grommets on the top and bottom of the left side. They have been approved by the Orange Shirt Society and have been smudged with sweetgrass and sage to honour the missing and the survivors of Residential schools. Each order will be accompanied by a letter from one of our Indigenous Advisors, and a copy of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada Calls to Action.

As a result of our bulk purchasing, these are 50% of the price of what other stores are selling them for individually. $15 from the purchase of each flag will be directed equally between the Orange Shirt SocietyThe Legacy Of Hope Foundation and the Residential School Survivors Society. Any remaining proceeds will go towards outdoor and land-based learning charities and non-profits that are endeavoring to do their part to deepen understanding and take action towards reconciliation.

We have posted a number of Indigenous Learning Resources that we encourage you to learn from and share.

“Please join us and begin this journey of healing for all Indigenous people by flying this flag in honour of all the missing children and to the survivors of these schools. Your support is so important to all of Canada and the flag reminds us that we all have work to do to unmask the truth.”
