We’ll be closed on October 2, 2023 for the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 29th, 2023 by Hunter Stone

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 October 2, 2023, to observe the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, held each year on September 30, 2023. 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.

Even without these larger issues, smaller forms of discrimination, or microaggressions, persist during the pandemic as well, even as our work lives have moved almost entirely online.

It has never been easier to work remotely, and professionals across the country have been lauding the advancements in technology that have made working possible during the pandemic. Zoom meetings, “fax by email,” Facetime calls, constant texting — they all allow employers to replicate the workplace experience for employees from the comfort of their home offices (or living room couches, or kitchens, or bedrooms).
