National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
The AFC offices will be closed on Friday, September 30, 2022, to observe the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
We are taking this day off to honour those who perished in the residential school system, the survivors, their families, and their communities. We are spending dedicated time to reflect on the inequities Indigenous communities continue to face every day and learn how we can help advance reconciliation.
We encourage everyone to participate by hearing and sharing the stories of survivors, donating to Indigenous organizations, and supporting Indigenous artists.
