National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
September 24, 2021

In July 2021, the Federal Government announced the creation of a new federal statutory (STAT) holiday on September 30, known as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The creation of this new STAT addresses one of the 94 Calls to Action from the National Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Legacy Co-op recognizes the importance of this day as an opportunity for our Team Members and our community to take time to recognize and become educated on the impacts and harmful legacy of residential schools, and to find ways to participate in meaningful acts of reconciliation and healing.

Legacy Co-op will mark the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation by recognizing it as a STAT holiday across our organization. Our Admin office will be closed that day and our stores will be operating STAT hours, based on each individual location. We urge community members to attend the events that may be held in their various communities.

The following event will be held in Yorkton:

Yorkton Tribal Council Orange Shirt Day

10:00 am: Walk (YTC to City Park)
11:00 am: Opening Comments
12:00 pm: Lunch
