Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada resources

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada released the executive summary of its findings on June 2, 2015.

Included were 94 Calls to Action to redress the legacy of Canada’s Indian Residential Schools. Call to Action #27 directly addresses the need for lawyers to receive cultural competence training:

“We call upon the Federation of Law Societies of Canada to ensure that lawyers receive appropriate cultural competency training, which includes the history and legacy of residential schools, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Treaties and Aboriginal rights, Indigenous law, and Aboriginal–Crown relations. This will require skills-based training in intercultural competency, conflict resolution, human rights, and anti-racism.”

What is reconciliation? 


While the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada offers a collection of videos through its official YouTube channel, the four listed below give an overview of the TRC purpose, process and outcomes.
