National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation Seeks Members for Survivors Circle
NATIONAL CENTRE FOR TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION
SEEKS MEMBERS FOR SURVIVORS CIRCLE
July 18, 2016
Today, the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) officially releases the Call for Nominations for positions on the Survivors Circle. This call invites First Nations, Inuit and Métis organizations, groups, communities and individuals across Canada to submit names for consideration.
“This is another important step in the development of the NCTR” says Ry Moran, Director of the Centre. “Ensuring we have strong Survivor voices guiding the development of the Centre is essential to our success.”
“As a Survivor, it is important to me that our stories and our experiences are preserved and passed on to future generations. This is our Truth, and our path to Reconciliation,” said Eugene Arcand, Governing Circle member.
Housed at the University of Manitoba, the NCTR is working collaboratively with a number of partners and organizations across Canada to respectfully steward all of the documents, statements and other materials collected by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission over the course of its mandate.
In addition to preserving the Sacred memory of these materials, in collaboration with its partners, the NCTR plays an active role in fostering Reconciliation by promoting greater understanding of the Residential School system and legacy through education across Canada.
The Governing Circle of the NCTR will select members of the Survivors Circle.
