National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
Young, Anderson’s office will be closed on September 30th in recognition of National Truth and Reconciliation Day.
In June, the federal government announced September 30th as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a new federal statutory holiday to commemorate the history and ongoing trauma caused by residential schools and to honour those who were lost and the survivors, families and communities who continue to grieve.
More information about the residential school system and its legacy can be found at the following link to the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation website: https://nctr.ca/about/.
We encourage everyone to further their learning and understanding of the history of residential schools and their impact on Indigenous peoples.
