Circle Project Council and Staff would like to thank The Fat Badger for recognizing the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. They decided to donate 50% of ALL food sales on September 30th to The Circle Project. This example of reconciliation in action is greatly appreciated and will be used towards the creation of the Circle Project Community & Cultural Hub. Thank you The Fat Badger!

At Circle Project we are thankful for our participants, funders, sponsors and community partners. We are also thankful to be able to spend time with our families and friends. Our offices will be closed on October 8 and 11. Happy Thanksgiving!

After co-hosting our new event in honour of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day, we want to take a moment to share some photos from our Children’s Centre. They were taken on September 30th, 2021 and are a good reminder that we need to remember the children every day, not just once a year. #EveryChildMatters

Circle Project Council and Staff would like to thank our community partner Regina Work Preparation Centre for co-hosting this amazing community event honouring the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day. Thanks to Munz Media for their ongoing support & for showcasing our community work! And last, but not least, we would like to thank the community for opening their arms and embracing reconciliation! It warmed our hearts to see the park come alive in a sea of orange. Thank you all and see you next year!

 

We would like to thank ALFA Engineering (http://www.alfaengltd.com/) for their donation and Torchy’s Sport Imaging for donating the profits from the sale of orange shirts in honour of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation to Circle Project. Thank you also to Camp Wolf Willow for their ongoing monthly support and the many individuals who made a donation during our event honouring the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day held on September 30, 2021.

On September 30, 2021, Circle Project and Regina Work Prep will be hosting an Orange Shirt Day event at City Square (Victoria Park) from 12:00 – 1:30 pm. This event will be held on the newly recognized National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and it will be a day to learn about, act on and honour the impact of residential schools and consider ways to address the 94 Calls to Action, outlined in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) Final Report. In response to Call to Action #80, this event will provide our community with an opportunity “to honour Survivors, their families and communities.”  It will be an opportunity for people to share their message of hope and reconciliation and an important first step towards healing for our community.

Circle Project Council and Staff would like to thank Gerrand Rath Johnson LLP for their donation which was made in honour and support of Canada’s National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Their donation will be applied towards the creation of Circle Project’s Community and Cultural Hub in North Central. The Hub will be a community place in Regina where all Indigenous peoples will have access to free self-improvement programming as well as cultural programs and activities.

Circle Project Council and Staff would like to thank Indigenous Christian Fellowship (ICF) for sharing one of their donations with us, a trash/recycling bin. This will come in handy when we move to Circle Project’s Community and Cultural Hub. Thank you ICF!

On September 30, 2021, in recognition of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange shirt day, Torchy’s Sport Imaging will be donating the profits from the sale of all orange shirts purchased through this link: ORANGE SHIRT SALE from now until September 17, 2021. Funds will be used for the development of Circle Project’s Community & Cultural Hub.

The orange shirts are worn to commemorate the Residential School experience, to witness and honour the healing journey of the survivors and their families and to commit to the ongoing process of reconciliation.  This year, with the ongoing location of the unmarked graves at former Residential Schools, the orange shirts have become a unifying way for all Canadians to come together and share that “all children matter”. Please consider purchasing a shirt and wearing it on September 30.
