City of Saint John continues to focus on learning around National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

As we honour and acknowledge the second-ever National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30, we as Canadians, as a region, and as a City continue to focus on our history and how we can learn and grow reflective of our past. The City of Saint John is committed to providing employees with educational opportunities focused on the diversity, history and traditions of Indigenous Peoples, the legacy of residential schools and their impact on Indigenous Peoples and their community, and the positive impact Indigenous leaders and representatives have throughout Canada and the world.

As part of this continued commitment to learning, members of Council and City employees have completed an online educational module called The Path, an in-depth informative history of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. Additionally, daily Truth and Reconciliation Moments were sent to all employees throughout the week providing information, resources, and reflections. We encourage the public to read these moments HERE.

The Every Child Matters flag will be flown at half-mast in front of City Hall out of respect for this important day.
