National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

On March 9, 2023, the Province of British Columbia passed legislation to make September 30 a statutory holiday to commemorate and honour the Indigenous lives that were lost, and the Survivors, families, and communities who continue to be impacted as a result of the Indian Residential School system in Canada. This day is called National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and will be held annually on September 30th. 


All Normac team members will be observing this day on Monday, October 2nd, 2023 and our offices will be closed as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation statutory holiday is on a Saturday in 2023. We encourage our team to take this time to learn more about Canadian and Indigenous history and culture. Acknowledging the historic and ongoing, intergenerational trauma Indigenous communities face as a result of the residential school system is an important and necessary step toward reconciliation.


Included below are some resources regarding the history of residential schools, education on reconciliation, and links to programs which you can help support through your donations. We all play a vital role in truth and reconciliation in that we honour and remember, celebrate resilience, and demonstrate a commitment in planning for a more inclusive and equitable future.
