We recently learned about some devastating and deeply saddening news in Canada. The remains of 215 Indigenous children were found at the site of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia.
Aurora would like to offer our deepest condolences to the Indigenous community and acknowledge the lives lost in this unthinkable tragedy. We stand united with all Indigenous communities across Canada.
To honour the lives of these children and support other residential school survivors, Aurora will be making a donation to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society.
Additionally, the donations raised by Aurora Employees here on CanadaHelps.org will be matched up to $10,000.
