Library and Information Community-Related Recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Indian Residential Schools
On Tuesday, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission released its findings after its multi-year investigation into over a century of physical, cultural and sexual abuses against Aboriginal children at Church-run Indian Residential Schools.
The Government Library & IM Professionals Network, part of the Canadian Library Association, has compiled the Commission’s many calls to action that focus on the information management community (museums, Library and Archives Canada, archivist associations, vital statistics agencies, etc.).
Library and Archives Canada has compiled a list of resources relating to residential school records.
