In July 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada released its final report. The following link is to a summary of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.
Public servants, administrators, and leaders throughout Canada who are interested in better understanding the history of residential schools, the impact that these schools had on Indigenous peoples, the ongoing legacy of this history, and what should be done for our collective future should take the time to familiarize themselves with the content of this report summary.
Together, Canadians must do more than just talk about reconciliation; we must learn how to practice reconciliation in our everyday lives — within ourselves and our families, and in our communities, governments, places of worship, schools, and workplaces. To do so constructively, Canadians must remain committed to the ongoing work of establishing and maintaining respectful relationships. – Truth and Reconciliation Final Report
