In June 2021, the Government of Canada announced September 30 as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This day calls on all Canadians to remember the history of Residential Schools, and the ongoing impacts of its legacy on Indigenous Peoples. It also honours the lost children and Survivors, their families, and communities.

September 30 is also Orange Shirt Day.

Hands will be open on September 30, 2021. Employees will honour the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation with learning and personal reflection. Hands has also partnered with Canadore College’s First Peoples’ Centre, who is hosting a ceremony to commemorate the day, at their College Drive, North Bay Campus.
