Day for Truth and Reconciliation - Office Closure October 2, 2023

The Mackenzie Valley Review Board observes and recognizes the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day. The day holds special significance for the communities and residents we serve across the North. On this day we pay tribute to Indigenous people who endured and continue to endure the impact of residential and day school.

In observance of this day our offices will be closed on Monday, Oct. 2nd. As an organization deeply committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion, we invite you to take a moment to continue to learn about the impacts of residential and day schools

and embrace reconciliation in your thoughts, intentions, and actions on this day and throughout the year.
