U13 AA Mississauga North Stars - Orange Jersey Project - 4The Orange Jersey Project uses the power of sport to educate young athletes about the history of the residential school system, strengthen the path toward truth and reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples, and promote the physical and mental wellness of Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth through sport.

“The U13 AA Mississauga North Stars – with the support of parents, players, bench staff, and the club – are proud to participate in the Orange Jersey Project and support the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s ‘Calls to Action’ by bringing awareness to the story of Indigenous athletes,” shared Coach Mark Goulart. “We wholeheartedly believe that ‘all children matter’ and that educating our youth on the history of residential schools is important so that we can learn from the past, foster healing, build relationships, and promote the wellbeing of our youth through the game of hockey.”

The Orange Jersey Project was originally created by Tyler Fuller, an Indigenous man from Kawatoose First Nation located in Saskatchewan. Since the idea and the creation of both the Orange Shirt Society and the Orange Jersey Project, the initiative has evolved into a nationally recognized and impactful organization.
