The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation was established in response to the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. The Centre is a critical hub for research, teaching, and healing, particularly in light of the recent findings of unmarked graves at sites of former residential schools.
To support the continued work of the Centre, a reelected Liberal government will:
- Provide funding towards the construction of a permanent home for the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation.
- Provide sustained financial support for the Centre for core operations in fulfilling the mandate issued by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission with dedicated support for the work on Missing Children and Unmarked Graves.
We will also continue to accelerate implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action.
