You are invited to attend the
Sharing Truth - Creating a National Research Centre on Residential
The purpose of this Forum is to inform the Commissioners of Canadaâ™s
Truth and Reconciliation Commission about experiences in other countries
in relation to their respective Truth and Reconciliation Commissions
and/or similar processes. The experience and knowledge represented at
the Forum will be varied and provide a broad base from which to move
There will be some organizations in attendance that have done thorough
document collection; some others have had experience with privacy and
access issues; some have had to produce results on a small budget, while
some have had big budgets; there are those that are associated with
universities, and still others that are stand-alone institutions; some
are national and more formal organizations, while others are more like
non-profits and advocacy organizations.
Our intention with this Forum is to learn from this broad spectrum of
experiences. Ultimately, the Commissioners will establish best practices
ensuring that a National Memory is preserved and recognized for future
generations of all Canadians.
Please note: In deference to those who have allergies, the Frost Centre
is now a scent-free environment.
