National Day for Truth and Reconciliation


September 15, 2021

The creation of new annual federal statutory holiday on September 30th marks a new milestone for delivering on Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action. As an organization, we want to acknowledge and support this as a meaningful occasion for our Indigenous communities.

In recognition of this, all TCU Financial Group branches will be closed September 30th, 2021 to allow our credit union to pause, reflect and participate in local events. On behalf of everyone at our credit union we hope our communities take the opportunity to consider the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools, as well as honour residential school survivors and Indigenous communities that are dealing with the traumatic discovery of unmarked graves across the country. 

This year our focus has been on education across our credit union to deepen our understanding of the history of Indigenous peoples, and the legacy of residential schools. As a lead up to the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, our staff and board will be participating in continued learning opportunities from Indigenous speakers. Our ongoing commitment is to continue along our strategic pathway of practicing inclusion and diversity in our organization.

We also acknowledge that as an organization we’ve not arrived at our destination and are continuously seeking out community resources to assist in the truth and reconciliation process. As an action, we want to invite you to share any resources below that will assist us and the rest of our business community to advancing our progress on this journey.
