Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action
In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) published its final report detailing the experiences and impacts of the residential school system, creating a historical record of its legacy and consequences.
The TRC recorded testimony of more than 6,000 survivors affected by residential schools.
Over more than a century, it is estimated that approximately 150,000 Indigenous children were separated from their families and communities and forced to attend one of 139 residential schools across Canada.
One outcome of the report was a document detailing 94 calls to action across a wide range of areas, including child welfare, education, health, justice, language and culture.
