It continues to be of incredible importance to learn about residential schools and the lasting impact they have had on the lives of so many families.

The Office of the Treaty Commissioner understands that more and more people are interested in being part of reconciliation. That journey needs to be grounded in truth and a shared understanding of our history. Reading about residential schools through the eyes of those who attended them is a good way to start.

The OTC created a list of suggested readings to help further understanding of the residential school experience and its legacy.

You can also read about some of the experiences being shared in light of the remains of 215 children found buried outside the former residential school in Kamloops.
