National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is September 30th

THE SALVATION ARMY OSHAWA LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

The Salvation Army Oshawa acknowledges the many Indigenous nations with longstanding relationships with the territories upon which our Church and our Community & Family Services are located.

While we cannot undo the past, we are committed to a different future and doing our part to contribute to an equitable, just, and grace-filled society.
