Sixth National Statutory Holiday May Be Coming to Canada

Canada may soon get a sixth national statutory holiday.

Sources close to the Trudeau Government expect the to be known as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, and that it will be announced soon.

The day is intended to mark the ruinous residential school legacy, and a statutory holiday is one of the 94 calls to action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

It is expected that the day will fall on either National Indigenous People’s Day on June 21st or Orange Shirt Day on September 30th.

Ottawa says that they are working closely with the First Nations, Inuit and Metis people to ensure that the day is both meaningful and truthful.
