September 30, 2022 marks the second National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. In recognition of this important event, BCNPHA will close its office for the day.
We encourage everyone to join us in marking National Day for Truth and Reconciliation by taking time to learn, reflect or attend an event, if there is one taking place in your community.
BCNPHA is committed to reconciliation in its roles as an employer and as an organization with an advocacy and education mandate.
If you are a Survivor and need assistance, the national Residential School Survivor Support Line is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 1–866-925-4419.
Please find a list of events and resources below. If there is something we should add, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
