TW: Residential Schools

An orange photo with text saying "215: Every child matters" and CAPACOA's logo

Our heartfelt thoughts go out to the living survivors, family, friends and everyone grieving the discovery of the unmarked mass grave at the site of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School. We at CAPACOA are filled with sadness and we mourn those 215 Indigenous children, and the many other Indigenous children that remain undiscovered in unmarked graves at Residential schools across the country.

During this time of grief and reflection, we urge everyone in the sector to learn and share about Canada’s residential schools and the lasting impacts on Indigenous communities through the links below:

The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation has educational programs and teaching resources.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada report findings.

The Indian Residential School Survivors Society has a wealth of information and services for survivors.
