Cultus Lake Park Office to Honour the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Cultus Lake Park Board and staff are committed to reconciliation and ensuring that the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools is never forgotten. This day provides an opportunity for each public servant to recognize and commemorate the legacy of residential schools and the impact on the indigenous communities.
