On December 7, 2021, the Ontario government announced that the COVID-19 Period is extended to July 30, 2022 (was slated to expire January 1, 2022).
For the first time, September 30 will mark the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This public holiday under the Federal Holidays Act and the Canada Labour Code is meant to give federal public servants and federally regulated employees an opportunity to recognize the legacy of residential schools.
