On June 2, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, led by the Honourable Justice Murray Sinclair, released a summary of its final report, Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future. Over the course of six years, the commissioners heard from nearly 7000 survivors and witnesses who spoke about the abuse that had taken place at residential schools.
The four most recent documents available include an Executive Summary, a statement of Principles, the Survivors Speak, and Calls to Action.
These items will be added Libraries’ catalog in mid July and be available through the Canadian Electronic Library (ebrary). You can download them today from the Truth and Reconciliation Committee website
