Anglican Church – Truth and Reconciliation

The Anglican church of Canada has recognized the damage done by residential schools to many Indigenous peoples and cultures. This link directs the reader to a section of the Anglican website which is centered on reconciliation and is ultimately a movement towards reconciling with the Indigenous peoples of Canada. They post videos of members of the clergy discussing the importance of reconciliation between the Anglican church and the Indigenous peoples of Canada and some who are owning up to the roles that they played during tragic events like residential schools. This page also provides an historical sketch of residential schools and also gives access to individual school history. Lastly, they provide an apology for the residential schools and provide resources for taking action.
