RDN Recognizing National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
The Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) is recognizing National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30 in alignment with the federal and provincial governments. Building and enhancing positive working relationships with First Nations and engaging on issues of common interest in our region is a priority. To help recognize the legacy of residential schools in Canada, flags will be flown at half-mast at the RDN’s administration building and recreation facilities on September 30.
“Formally recognizing this important day is in response to one of the 94 Truth and Reconciliation’s Calls to Action,” said Tyler Brown, RDN Chair. “It is essential that we make ongoing space to honour residential school survivors and their communities, and do our part as citizens, friends, neighbours and governments to collectively come to terms with truths about our country and advance reconciliation.”
Some services at the RDN will be impacted on September 30. RDN offices and recreation facilities will be closed that day. Regular services and programs will resume on October 1.
The RDN Transit System will operate at a full weekday level of service, the Regional Landfill and Church Road Transfer Station will be open regular hours and curbside collection services will be provided as outlined on the 2021 collection schedule.
