British Columbians will get a paid day off on September 30th

to help mark National Day for Truth and Reconciliation going forward.

Provincial legislature passed first reading of new legislation on Tuesday

morning (February 7). Minister of Labour Henry Bains introduced the legislation

on Tuesday (Feb. 7), with the first reading receiving unanimous consent.

Sept. 30 became a federal holiday in 2021 and coincides with Orange Shirt Day,

which commemorates the historic and current impacts of

Canada’s residential school system on Indigenous people.
