Will the new public holiday on September 30 – the Truth & Reconciliation Day, be considered a statutory holiday?

Not in Alberta. Technically, the Sept. 30 holiday is a stat holiday only for those subject to the federal Canada Labour Code. No other jurisdiction has added it to their stat holidays list–at least not yet.
