The Government of Canada has announced a $4M investment to support events and projects that commemorate Truth and Reconciliation in honour of the upcoming National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Organizations across Canada will use the funding to remember the impact of residential schools and foster healing for Survivors, families, and communities. Schools and education centres from across the country were among those who received funding for the initiatives, including Matthew Halton High School, Allison Bernard Memorial High School, the School District of Mystery Lake, Seven Oaks School Division, the Toronto District School Board, Yellowquill University College, Lakehead University, and the University of New Brunswick. The University of Manitoba: National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation also received over $626K to offer a week’s worth of educational programming called Truth and Reconciliation Week: Remembering the Children.
