Following the publication of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's summary of the final report, Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future, the Canadian Anthropology Society would like to encourage people to consult and read the summary report that is now available online. We believe that reconciliation must be an ongoing process and that the report is the result of an exhaustive and thorough analysis of the history and consequences of residential schools in Canada. Informed citizens and scholars would be well advised to consult this document and educational institutions are encouraged to make use of the findings of the Commission. For this reason, CASCA has taken as a position that the results of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's work should be disseminated and a greater knowledge of the report and the findings contained therein widely distributed for discussion and consideration, including the Commission's Calls to Action. Here are some links:
