Canada will be observing its second National Day for Truth and Reconciliation this Friday, September 30.

The federal holiday was instituted last year in 2021 and "honours the children who never returned home and Survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities," according to the Government of Canada.

The holiday involves public commemoration of the lasting impacts of residential schools.

Not all business hours are impacted by the day because it's a federal statutory holiday; while banks and other federally regulated businesses may be closed, stores and malls won't necessarily be shut.
