Summary

Editor (2008). A Truth and Reconciliation Commission for Canada. Restorative Justice Online. November 2008 Edition.

In June 2008, the Canadian government undertook an effort to understand the history, abuses and intergenerational impact of the Indian Residential School (IRS) system that operated in Canada for over 100 years. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) seeks to provide survivors and others affected by the IRS system a safe and culturally relevant opportunity to share their stories. By educating the entire country on the realities of this little understood period of its history, it hopes to build common understanding and better relations among Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Canadians.
