Lakeland District - Keeping you Up to Date!

In recognition of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, the LDSCR will be observing September 30 as a statutory holiday and our offices will be closed for that day.
This is an opportunity for us all to exhibit our commitment toward honoring the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions of Canada's Calls to Action. 
We encourage all of you to take this time to reflect upon how we as an organization and individuals can further advance Truth and Reconciliation and recognize the history and legacy of the residential school system.
