The government recently passed legislation to make September 30th a federal statutory holiday called National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This holiday provides an important learning opportunity for all of us to take time to pause and reflect; and have important conversations about Canada’s tragic legacy of residential schools.
SOAHAC’s priority is to provide continuity of care for our clients and we will be open for September 30th and will remain open; hosting events, providing programming, teachings on the importance and significance of this day.
As part of the reconciliation process, SOAHAC will acknowledge this day to honour First Nations, Inuit and Métis Survivors, their families and communities to ensure public remembrance of our shared history and the generational harm caused by residential schools.
If you have any questions, please reach out to your local SOAHAC site for more information.
