national day of truth and reconciliation

City Hall, the Port Moody Recreation Complex, and the Port Moody Public Library will be closed on Friday, September 30, 2022 to mark the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. 

The day honours the children who never returned home and the Survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities. It encourages Canadians to commemorate the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools by taking meaningful actions that contribute to reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples.
