In honour of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on Friday, September 30, the City of Corner Brook will be closing City Hall and other facilities. Transit will operate on its regular schedule. Civic Centre activities will operate as previously scheduled and the walking track will be open, but the office will be closed. Garbage Day 3 will move to Monday October 3 and the schedule will move ahead a day.
The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation pays tribute to the lost children and survivors of residential schools, their families and communities. During this time we encourage residents of Corner Brook to take some time to reflect and learn about the lasting impact of residential schools, as well as the histories and cultures of the indigenous members of our community. Qalipu First Nation will be holding activities for all members of the community to attend. You can see more information here (link).
