NCTR receives $5M gift from Winnipeg Foundation to establish new home


The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR), hosted by the University of Manitoba, has received a $5M gift from the Winnipeg Foundation. The funds will contribute to a $40M capital campaign to build a new home for the NCTR. The new location will offer a safe space for the community to come together to share stories, learn about the history of residential schools, further reconciliation, and heal. “The new home for the NCTR will be an internationally renowned site of learning, healing and meaningful action,” said UManitoba President Dr Michael Benarroch.
