Town Flags Lowered in Memory of Kamloops Residential School Children
To show our respect and honour the 215 children at the site of a former residential school for Indigenous children, the flags at the Town Office will remain lowered until Friday. We mourn the discovery of these buried remains and keep the survivors and their families in our thoughts and prayers.
A National Indian Residential School Crisis Line has been set up to provide support for former students and those affected. Emotional and crisis referral services can be accessed by calling the 24-hour national crisis line: 1-866 925-4419.
