National Day for Truth & Reconciliation - Thursday September 30
In June 2021 the federal government passed legislation to mark Thursday September 30 as a National Day for Truth & Reconciliation. To observe this day of reflection, Memorial University will be closed, classes will be cancelled and university employees who are normally entitled to provincial and federal holidays will receive this day off.
