The Truth and Reconciliation Commission was formed as a means of reckoning with the devastating legacy of forced assimilation and abuse left by the residential school system. From 2008 to 2014, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission heard stories from thousands of residential school survivors.
In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission released its final report, titled “Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future”, to acknowledge the history and legacy of Canada’s residential school system.
