Orange Shirt Day

U of T 2023 Orange Shirt Day Tee

In recognition of Orange Shirt Day 2023 and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, the Office of Indigenous Initiatives has again partnered with the UofT Bookstore to produce a limited supply of orange t-shirts.

This year's shirt features artwork by MJ Singleton, the winner of a tri-campus design contest. MJ is an Ojibwe, two-spirit student from Migisi Sahgaigan First Nation who is currently studying at the University of Toronto's Mississauga campus. Their design, titled noojimo’iwe, emphasizes the importance of healing the intergenerational trauma of residential schooling by supporting and loving those around you. The design depicts three children holding hands, with flowers blooming around them.

$10 from the sale of each shirt will be directed to the Orange Shirt Society. No proceeds will be collected by the UofT Bookstore or the University.
