National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Since 2013, September 30 has been commemorated as Orange Shirt Day across Canada in honour of the Survivors of Indian Residential Schools. September 30 has been designated as National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The date was declared a statutory federal holiday with the passage of Bill C-5 in June of 2021, in response to one of the 94 Calls to Action of Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission. This day is an important step in the reconciliation process. It provides an opportunity to recognize and commemorate the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools, and to honour their survivors, their families and communities.

The District of Logan Lake will be closed on Friday, September 30, 2022 in recognition of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Reconciliation is a journey in which we all have a part to play. May we all find ways to listen, to dialogue, and to act in pursuit of truth, dignity, and, ultimately reconciliation.

The Indian Residential Schools Crisis Line is available 24-hours a day for anyone experiencing pain or distress as a result of their Residential school experience. Non-emergency calls to The Indian Residential Schools Survivors Society can be directed to 1-800-721-0066.
