Canada, Aboriginal Peoples, and Residential Schools: They Came for the Children
This Report was prepared in compliance with the Commission’s obligation to prepare such a Report at the two-year point of its mandate. However, it has been written without a review of government and church documents, as the Commission has experienced significant delays in the collection and receipt of those documents. In addition, the gathering of statements from survivors and those otherwise involved in the schools is ongoing.–Chief Justice Murray Sinclair.
