Hatfield Recognizes Canada’s National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
Sep 26, 2022
September 30 is Canada’s National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Hatfield has chosen to provide this day off to give our staff time and space to properly observe this important day. We hope that Hatfield staff, and all Canadians, will reflect on the the residential school system, wear orange shirts in the spirit of reconciliation, and continue to educate themselves and their families.
