Truth and Reconciliation Commission: Calls to Action

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) of Canada was established in 2008 to examine the legacy of Canada’s residential school system. This report, released in December, 2015, includes ninety-four recommendations and/or calls to action towards reconciliation for Canada. The recommendations addressed a variety of areas in Canadian society including Canadian governments, equity of Aboriginal people in the legal system, establishing a National Council for Reconciliation and a National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, Church apologies, child welfare, education, youth programs, as well as reconciliation in museums, archives, sports, media, business and newcomers to Canada.
