The TRC is holding its closing events in Ottawa,
May 31-June 3, 2015.
This is an important moment in the history of our nation and denomination.
For more than 120 years, tens of thousands of Aboriginal children were sent to Indian Residential Schools funded by the federal government and run by the churches. They were taken from their families and communities in order to be stripped of language, cultural identity and traditions. Canada’s attempt to wipe out Aboriginal cultures failed. But it left an urgent need for reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples.
All gatherings are held at the Delta Ottawa, unless otherwise indicated. Open to the public and admission is free.
