Indian Residential Schools

This guide offers resources regarding Indian Residential Schools in Canada.

Primary Sources

The primary repository of archival information is the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, located in Winnipeg at the University of Manitoba. However, archival collections containing records of Indian Residential Schools can be found elsewhere as well. The Indian Residential School History and Dialogue Centre at the University of British Columbia is one significant repository, as is Library and Archives Canada and the archives of the various Churches that ran the institutions.
