The Good Samaritan Society, a Lutheran Social Service Organization, is a not-for-profit, registered charity with over 65 years of experience providing specialized health and community care services in innovative and caring environments.
Good Samaritan recognizes National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
A day to understand and acknowledge the history and impact that residential schools had on the Indigenous population of Canada. We applaud the Government of Canada for moving in this direction as we agree this recognition is essential to a better future for all Canadians.
As an organization and as individuals, there is much work to do to spread the message of healing and reconciliation from the troubled past and into a future in which all Canadians, regardless of background and history, can stand together. Over the coming months to years ahead, Good Samaritan will work with Indigenous leaders, organizations, and communities on the best and most respectful ways to mark the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
