The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada is part of a comprehensive response to the legacy of Indian Residential Schools as set out in the Residential Schools’ Settlement Agreement reached in May 2006. The Commission is mandated to look at activities within residential schools, as well as the impacts of the schools’ stated aim to assimilate Aboriginal children.
The United Church took part in “Voicing the Past,” [PDF: 8 pp/55 KB] an event held by the Indian Residential School Survivors Society of B.C. to learn more about the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
