It’s about wisdom – a National Journey for Healing and Reconciliation.
For 116 years, thousands of Aboriginal children in Alberta were sent to Indian Residential Schools funded by the Government of Canada and run by churches. They were taken from their parents and communities, often forcibly, in order to be stripped of family ties, language, cultural identity and traditions. There were more Indian Residential Schools in Alberta than in any other province.
The first stage of the journey of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada is now complete. As of December 18 2015, the TRC offices are now closed. But the journey of Truth and Reconciliation is far from over. The work of the TRC has now been transferred to the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation. We invite you to explore the collection and resources through the links below:
