We’ll be closed on September 30, 2022 for the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 13th, 2022 by Hunter Stone

Last year, September 30, 2021, was the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation in Ontario. This day of public commemoration honours the children who never returned home and the survivors of residential schools. Affected families and communities are also remembered as part of the reconciliation process.

Our office will be closed on September 30, 2022. The intention is to spend the day educating ourselves about this day and the ways in which our tragic history continues to affect indigenous communities.
