Use these resources to learn about the history, heritage, and culture of the Indigenous Peoples of Canada, as well as the Truth and Reconciliation process. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s mandate is to inform all Canadians of the history of the residential school system and to record the experiences of survivors, their families, and others involved. The Commission released a 2015 report which led to 94 Calls to Action – individual instructions to guide governments, communities, and faith groups down the road to reconciliation.
Below are a selection of resources on Truth and Reconciliation and what has been done in British Columbia to support the findings of the Truth Reconciliation Commission. We hope you find these resources useful:
Reconciliation is a process and it is important to know that we are all responsible to live our lives aware of the full history of the place we call home in Canada. It’s also important to understand what we can all do as new arrivals on this land and what our next steps are.
