The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) will be conducting a Community Engagement Session in Standoff, Alberta and they want to hear from you.
The Centre houses all statements, documents and other materials that were collected by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC). On November 24th, 2015 they will be in Standoff, Alberta at the Multipurpose Building. The session is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and lunch will be provided. Health Supports will also be available during the event.
Ry Moran, Director of the NCTR says, “Having access to the records has real meaning for Survivors because many were raised for years in a residential school away from their families. Bringing these documents together allows them to reconnect with their past and their families’ past.”
The Community Engagement gives participants an opportunity to share their thoughts for the Centre. All Survivors, Inter-Generational Survivors and the general public are encouraged to attend the N-C-T-R Community Engagement Session.
