Community Conversation: How can we honour the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation?

Thursday, October 28, 7:00 pm to 8:15 pm

Event Website

This past year, September 30th was officially named as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. While recognized as a federal statutory holiday throughout Canada, it remains a work day for provinces including Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and Manitoba. There is much debate on how this day should be commemorated. Should workers be provided with time off to commemorate, learn, and unlearn about Indigenous history? Or will people use their paid time off to rest and disengage? For workers who are unable to get paid time off, how can they commemorate this important day if they must work?

On Thursday, October 28th, from 7-8:15pm over Zoom, join us for Community Conversation: How can we honour the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation? We encourage engagement and respectful, curious questions about the topic of this conversation, and also encourage attendees to read our code of conduct for more information about the norms of engagement for our panel discussion. We look forward to welcoming our community into this important conversation!
