September 30th has been declared the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, a federal statutory holiday. As a result, Oromocto’s Mayor and Council announce it will become a designated paid holiday for its municipal employees.

“This day is meant to give the employees an opportunity to honour survivors, their families and all who have been affected by the history of the residential schools and supports the call to action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. September 30th is also Orange Shirt Day and the Town invites Canadians to wear orange shirts to honour the survivors of residential schools,” said Mayor Powell.

For anyone looking to organize an Orange Shirt Day at their school or work, their website www.orangeshirtday.org may offer guidance.
