Nunatsiavut government says no specific dates have been set for Hopedale or other Inuit communities

Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Andrew Furey is set to deliver an apology to Nunatsiavut residential school survivors in November in Hopedale, according to a social media post by the Nunatsiavut government’s Department of Health and Social Development.

But in response to questions from CBC News, the Nunatsiavut government says nothing has been confirmed, including the dates of the apology or details of any potential apologies in other Inuit communities.

In the post, the department said Furey was considering the first few days of November for the apology.

The post was later deleted, replaced by a version that made no mention of potential dates.
