Notes
"Some former students of Indian residential schools are concerned and confused about an Aug. 7 [2014] Ontario Superior Court ruling that testimony about the abuse suffered in the schools should be destroyed after 15 years unless they agree to provide their personal information to the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation. The ruling applies only to testimony given by about 40,000 former students to the Independent Assessment Process (IAP), an out-of-court process set up following the negotiation of the 2007 Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement" (p. 1). "The Rev. Andrew Wesley, a former residential school student, now an Anglican priest who works in urban native ministry with the diocese of Toronto, said that there has been some confusion among survivors who think that the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) testimonies are being destroyed. 'Actually, that's not so', he explained. Records from hearings that have taken place across Canada since 2010 are public and will be archives in the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation in Winnipeg" (p. 3). "Survivors who would prefer to have the transcripts of their testimony to the IAP returned to them can request a copy by asking the adjudicator at their hearing" (p. 3).

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]

"On November 4 [2015], a key tool in [the work of reconciliation] will become available when the National Research Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NRCTR) opens it doors. Operating out of the University of Manitoba, in Winnipeg, the research centre holds the millions of records uncovered by the [Truth and Reconciliation] commission that detail the role government and churches played in the 150-year history of the residential school system, as well as the thousands of survivor testimonies shared with the TRC. One of the NRCTR's most powerful resources is a searchable database that will allow survivors, families and researchers access to records relating to individuals and schools. 'Opening of the database marks the first step in the journey to really start to provide meaningful access to the records that so many have worked so hard to collect over the past six years', said NRCTR director Ry Moran". "Although all relevant Anglican records have been handed over, Nancy Hurn, General Synod archivist, said the NRCTR and the Anglican archives continue to work closely".

"It has been a long process, but on Jan. 16 [2015] the Anglican Church of Canada submitted its digital records relating to Indian Residential Schools -- over 300,000 pages of documents -- to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). For General Synod archivist Nancy Hurn, who do-ordinated the seven-year digitization process, it has been a journey filled with hard work. It has, however, been a rewarding one" (p. 1). "Approximately half of the digitized records came from the General Synod archives in Toronto, which also holds records from the Arctic and Keewatin dioceses. The rest of the records came from the archives of 30 dioceses across Canada, including those that did not have residential schools within their boundaries. The documents Hurn and the other archivists compiled will be held at the National Research Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NRCTC) at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg" (p. 1, 15). "Aside from the digital documents, the church has also submitted almost 12,000 'electronically-created documents' and over 6,000 photographs relating to residential schools" (p. 15). The director of the NRCTR is Ry Moran. "The NRCTR plan on making the records available electronically available online in ways that will allow survivors to access them remotely. It has also promised to 'provide personal assistance with navigating, using, and understanding the records' for those who don't have familiarity with computers" (p. 15).

"Bernard Valcourt, minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development, has announced that his office is working out the details of an agreement that will allow the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) to extend the commission's term until June 30, 2015. The additional time will allow the TRC to complete its mandate. Justice Murray Sinclair, chair of the TRC, told the 'Anglican Journal' that the extension was necessary but explained that it was because the federal government had refused to provide the relevant documents from Library and Archives Canada until a court ordered it to do so. The work that remains for the TRC includes setting up the National Research Centre, analyzing documents and receiving survivor statements". [Text of entire article.]
