North Peace Savings and Credit Union branches will be closed September 30th to honour National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
In June, the federal government passed a new legislation making September 30th a federal statutory holiday to recognize and commemorate the legacy of the residential schools.
The designation of this day is in response to one of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action and is meant to honour residential school survivors, their families, and communities. It also ensures the ongoing commemoration of the history and legacy of residential schools which remains a vital part of the reconciliation process.
The North Peace Savings team is on a collective learning journey to deepen our understanding of truth and reconciliation and we are honoured to respect this significant day.
Schedule for Truth and Reconciliation Week For the week starting September 30, there a number of free, online educational events for the public.
