The Land and Water Boards of the Mackenzie Valley will be closed on Friday, Sept. 30 in recognition of the second National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
Our office will reopen on Monday, Oct. 3.
We recognize the day’s importance in raising awareness of the truth and history of residential schools in Canada.
We recommit our efforts to advance reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples and encourage Canadians to participate in the day’s events held to honour children from residential schools who never made it home as well as the Survivors and families who continue to carry the impacts. For resources to see how you can participate, we have provided the following links:
