The Truth & Reconciliation Commission

"The National Centre for Truth & Reconciliation continues the work started by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC). The TRC was established as part of a legal settlement, the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement, between Survivors, the Government of Canada, the Assembly of First Nations and Inuit representatives, and the church bodies that had run residential schools. As part of that Agreement, the TRC was mandated to inform all Canadians about the residential school system and its legacy. The NCTR was created through an agreement between the TRC and the University of Manitoba shortly before the conclusion of the TRC’s mandate. The Survivors’ statements, documents, and other materials collected through the TRC now form the heart of the NCTR." (

Below are a few links to publicly available information from the NCTR and TRC as well as some documents which highlight the responsibilities of the church in response to the TRC Calls to Action and other reports which you may find helpful.
