The Justice Department of the Canadian territory of Nunavut has begun consulting businesses as to the implementation of the September 30th, National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, as a statutory holiday throughout Nunavut.

Late last summer (2021-09-16), Nunavut’s minister of human resources, David Akeeagok, had announced that, due to insufficient time to amend existing legislation, only Government of Nunavut public servants would be given the day off for the September 30th, National Day for Truth and Reconciliation ("the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation will not be a statutory holiday in Nunavut until September 30, 2022").

The Canadian Federal Bill C-5 which declares September 30, a new annual federal public holiday in Canada to be named National Truth and Reconciliation Day, introduced a year ago (2020-09-30), was later added to the list of annual Canadian bank holidays (2021-06-19).

Since 2020 (2020-06-16), Nunavut Day has also been added as an annual statutory public holiday in Nunavut.
