Truth and Reconciliation in 2023

For Immediate Release: September 29, 2023, 10:00 AM (-6GMT)

A new independent poll conducted by Insightrix Research highlights one half (53%) of Saskatchewan residents say the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation is important to them personally. This is consistent with a similar poll we conducted in October 2022. Those of indigenous ancestry, females, younger and middle-aged residents and those living in Regina and Saskatoon are more likely to hold the Day in high importance.


Participation in The National Day of Truth and Reconciliation

Four in ten residents say they plan to wear orange in recognition of The National Day of Truth and Reconciliation this week, up from 36% who said they wore orange last year. Few (16%) plan to participate in or attend an event related to the Day. Planned employer participation in the Day is modest.

Support for making The National Day of Truth and Reconciliation a Statutory Holiday

Residents are largely supportive (71%) of making The National Day of Truth and Reconciliation a statutory holiday, consistent with our 2022 poll (70%). Support largely aligns demographically with the importance residents place on the Day.
