Stories of Canada's Indian Residential Schools Now Available

Welcome page for NCTR (links do not work, see body of post)

The Canadian National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) houses the largest collection of materials on the history and impact of the Residential School System and includes one of the largest collections of oral history in the country.  
The collection consists of materials from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC), the Government of Canada, Survivors and the Churches.


As a U.S. citizen, who has traveled several times to Canada and visited most of the provinces, this was an unknown piece of history – unfortunately a tragic piece of history.

Through the NCTR website you can access images, reports, survivor stories and much more.

Whether your ancestors may or may not have lived at these residential schools for Indians, you cannot help but be affected by learning of their existence and the efforts to preserve the memories of those who attended.
