Orange Shirt Day

Only five years old, Orange Shirt Day is held every Sept. 30 – this year it’s Saturday. The Manitoba Teachers’ Society – together with Manitoba’s education partners and many Indigenous organizations – will be honouring residential school survivors throughout the final week of September.

MTS has redesigned its popular Orange Shirt Day t-shirts to include the theme Every Child Matters in seven Indigenous languages. 

You can order your MTS orange shirt at If your association or organization would like to bulk order (over 50 pieces) email
