National British Home Child Day

September 28, 2023

For those of you who don’t know, National British Home Child Day is September 28th, in honour of the 100,000 children sent to Canada as indentured farm labourers and domestic servants. As a descendant of one of these children, I am asking you to please consider leaving your outside lights on overnight on the 28th or place a sunflower in your window — the BHC floral emblem. You will be joining hundreds of individuals and communities throughout Canada…and even some in the UK, US and Australia.  – Susan Hillman Brazeau, @Canadian Genealogy (Meta Facebook)
