Prologue
TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION COMMISSION (TRC) #025-12-13-03 : Document Collection
Archdeacon Thompson welcomed Ms. Nancy Hurn, General Synod Archivist, and Archdeacon Jim Boyles. He spoke about the digitizing of archival documents for TRC, whose mandate it is to gather relevant archival material from all parties involved with the operations of residential schools (including General Synod). This work has commenced but TRC lacks adequate resources to complete it. Archdeacon Thompson advised that money is available in the unrestricted surplus of the Missionary Society of the Anglican Church of Canada. He also emphasized that this work and expenditure is a response to a request from the TRC to the Parties to the Settlement Agreement.
Archdeacon Thompson requested COGS to consider contributing a portion of the reserve funds from the Missionary Society of the Anglican Church of Canada (MSCC) for this work. He thanked Ms. Hurn for her leadership and advocacy and Archdeacon Boyles for volunteering his time to assist with assembly of the documents. [Applause]
