One of the jobs of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada is to gather statements from former students of the Indian Residential Schools and anyone else who feels they have been impacted by the schools and their legacy.
In October, 2005, Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders in child welfare gathered in Niagara Falls at an historic event called Reconciliation: Looking Back, Reaching Forward – Indigenous Peoples and Child Welfare. The result of this gathering was the creation of the Touchstones of Hope, which was presented for the first time in a document entitled Reconciliation in Child Welfare: Touchstones of Hope for Indigenous Children, Youth and Families.
