A Day To Listen

On June 30th, in honour of National Indigenous History Month, radio stations all across Canada held space for “A Day To Listen”. 

Over 150,000 Indigenous children were taken away to residential schools... and thousands of those children lost their lives. 

In partnership with the Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack Fund, we came together for a day where radio amplifies the voices of Indigenous People in Canada.
