The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) was created to preserve the memory of Canada’s Residential School system and legacy. Not just for a few years, but forever.
Officially opening in the summer of 2015, the NCTR will be the permanent home for all statements, documents, and other materials gathered by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC).
The NCTR will ensure that:
• Survivors and their families have access to their own history
• Educators can share the Residential School history with new generations of students
• Researchers can delve more deeply into the Residential School experience
• The public can access historical records and other materials to help foster reconciliation and healing
• The history and legacy of the Residential School system are never forgotten
