This year marks the first time ever that Canada is observing Truth and Reconciliation Day, a new national holiday, which takes place on Thursday, September 30.

While some provinces have suggested that they would not be observing the day, BC is planning to honour it as a day of commemoration, not as a statutory holiday.
