This will be a very busy week for those looking to take in a number of events in the lead up to Friday's National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, which has been noted as one for reflection of the past and a chance to shape the future.

Much of the activity this week will come through the schools in the city, which will be exploring a range of themes in classroom and with other events, but there are some community opportunities to take in as well.

Below is a look at some of the one's that we have taken note of to date.

The Nisga'a Hall will be the host for a number of Community Awareness Workshops both today and tomorrow.

Wednesday September 28th brings a Free Community Film Viewing event to the Lester Centre of the Arts, with features to follow the Opening Ceremony of 10AM

The Nisga'a Hall is the Venue for a Thursday Residential School Survivors Reception, which will feature a Lunch Tea and Gift Giving Reception, for more information on that recognition event call 250-627-1595 (Extension 222)

On Friday, the Day for National Truth and Recognition the Prince Rupert Friendship House is hosting a Community Walk starting at Noon Hour. For more details on the event contact

St. Paul's Lutheran Church is hosting a Film and Discussion on themes of Reconciliation with their event to take lace from 9AM to Noon Hour. 

Last week we noted that the City of Prince Rupert declared September as a Month for National Truth and Reconciliation, making the proclamation at their September 20th Council session. 

So far there has been no further information as to what other plans, if any, that the City has to officially take note of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. 

The city noted last week that they currently have a Framework Policy on Reconciliation under development. 

With Friday a day off for many, Civic Facilities and services will be impacted, you can keep up with the City's list from their Social Media page.

We will add to the list of events for this week as more items are noted.

Should you know of any events we should be aware of send us an email at
