National Day for Truth and Reconciliation: All Locations Closed

- Comments: 0

In observance of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, all locations will be closed on Thursday, September 30th.

Regular hours will be in effect on Friday, October 1st.

 


National Day of Truth and Reconciliation.

New legislation designates September 30 of each year as National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and declares it to be a new public holiday under the Canada Labour Code. The new holiday seeks to honour First Nations, Inuit, Métis residential school survivors, their families and communities. September 30 is also Orange Shirt Day, which began in 2013 with people wearing orange shirts to remember Indigenous children forced to leave their families and attend residential schools.

In observance of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, all Library and Museum locations will be closed on Thursday, September 30th. Regular hours will be in effect on Friday, October 1st.

Durham Indigenous Voices Discussion Series

The Durham libraries, Durham College, Ontario Tech University, DCSI, OTSU, and the Region of Durham, in partnership with the Rotary Club of Whitby Sunrise, have launched a collaborative four-part panel discussion series with Indigenous peoples and First Nations from the Durham Region. Reconciliation, Resilience, Resistance, and Resurgence will focus on actions that support and amplify Indigenous Voices in our community as we move forward with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Calls-to-Action.

Learn how to become an ally to speak out against Anti-Indigenous Racism. View the discussion on the Library's YouTube channel.

A National Residential School Crisis Line has been set up to provide support for survivors. This 24-Hour Crisis Line can be accessed at: 1-866-925-4419. The Indian Residential School Survivors Society (IRSSS) can be contacted toll-free at 1-800-721-0066 or on their website at https://www.irsss.ca/
