Commission to Recognize National Day for Truth & Reconciliation

The Edmonton Police Commission will be observing the Government of Alberta’s National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30th.

The Commission recognizes the incredible importance of this day and are committed to working with our Indigenous communities as we work towards building and strengthening our relationships.

“We will be encouraging all of our Commissioners and staff to mark this important day by attending community events and activities to help reflect on our collective and individual roles as we all travel this path to truth and reconciliation.

I encourage everyone to learn more about the intergenerational trauma caused to Indigenous Peoples by taking the time to listen and reflect on this legacy caused by residential schools”, stated Commission Chair, Micki Ruth.

The Commission office will be closed to the public in observance of this day.
