Payments Canada closed in observance of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30

On September 30, Payments Canada, as a federally regulated workplace, will be closed in observance of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This is a new national holiday to commemorate the tragic history and lasting effects of Canada’s residential school system, and to honour Indigenous survivors and their families and communities.


On this inaugural day of recognition, and annually on this date going forward, Payments Canada’s operations and payment systems will be closed.
