Cox & Palmer announces office closures in Recognition of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

August 31, 2021

In alignment with our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion, we will close our offices throughout the region to observe the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30th.

This new federal statutory holiday stems from one of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action to commemorate the legacy of residential schools and is intended to honour survivors, their families, and communities and ensure that public tribute of the history and ongoing impact of residential schools remains a critical part of the reconciliation process.

September 30th was chosen, as it falls on the same day as Orange Shirt Day, which was established in 2013 as a day of recognition when people across Canada wear orange shirts to remember and honour Indigenous children who were taken from their families and communities to residential schools.

It is our honour to provide our team with the opportunity to reflect.

Please note, given that the courts and many businesses will remain open on this day, any members of our team involved with time sensitive client matters, court proceedings, closings or the like will carry-on business as usual on September 30th.
