Truth and Reconciliation

national Day for Truth & Reconciliation

On September 30, the Prince Edward County Chamber of Commerce will observe the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a new statutory day of remembrance recently announced by the Government of Canada. We will be closing our office in an effort to provide time for recognition and commemoration of the history and ongoing legacy of residential schools.

Canada’s recovery cannot be complete without Indigenous reconciliation and we believe the business community has an important role to play in this. We encourage businesses to use this day to acknowledge the history of Indigenous communities in and around the Bay of Quinte region, engage in education and reflect on the journey of healing and reconciliation that we are living in.
