Books on Canada’s Indian Residential Schools

From Truth to Reconciliation


The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) spent five years travelling across Canada, hearing stories about Residential School experiences and their effects. The TRC created many documents detailing their findings; most importantly, the 94 Calls to Action that urge all levels of government, including Indigenous, to work together to repair the harm done and to move forward with reconciliation. Covering hundreds of years of history, thousands of stories heard, and many published reports, it can be hard to fully comprehend the work done. This summary of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s work will help you gain a broad understanding of reconciliation in Canada
