Call for accountability in support of residential school survivors

Published on June 29, 2021
Only a few weeks ago, the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation announced that the remains of 215 children had been found on the grounds of a Kamloops Residential School and now hundreds more unmarked graves have been discovered on the site of a former residential school in Saskatchewan, on what is now the Cowessess First Nation. Amid the expressions of mourning from government officials, we have seen very little committed action. It’s been six years since the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) put out 94 calls to action, and far too few have been implemented, including those around missing children and burial grounds. We can and must do better.
Please sign our two petitions below and send a message to your Federal and Provincial representatives demanding that they implement the TRC's Calls to Action today.
