National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Sep 30, 2022

Most City facilities and services including the Canada Games Centre will be closed on Friday, September 30 in recognition of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Weekend service will be in effect for Transit, and the Waste Management Facility will be open.

Residents are encouraged to take advantage of opportunities to learn the truth of residential schools, accept the difficult reality of missing children from those schools, and how these events continue to impact Indigenous families and communities. In a place where First Nations are a key piece of our community fabric, it is important for all of us to reflect on the work we are doing to advance Reconciliation in our own lives. The City of Whitehorse is committed to working with First Nations Governments to better understand, recognize, and incorporate the important role they play in shaping the community and we are thankful to be able to share this place with the Kwanlin Dün First Nation and the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council.
