Sage closed Friday, September 30 in honour of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Posted on September 28 2022

Friday, September 30 is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation: a day to recognize the need to make tangible actions toward recognizing the truth and reconciliation process with Canada’s Indigenous peoples. The atrocities of Canada's residential school system have had a lasting, traumatic, and very present impact on Indigenous people across our country. A commitment to reconciliation requires that we acknowledge and act on this lived and inter-generational trauma. 

In observance of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, Sage will be closed Friday, September 30, 2022.
