"On March 11, 2003 the Anglican Church of Canada signed an agreement with the federal government that effectively ended its involvement in what had been financially crippling court cases over the church's role in running native residential schools. The agreement called for the establishment of a settlement fund that would compensate people who could prove claims that they had suffered physical or sexual abuse while attending the schools. The church -- General Synod and each of the 30 dioceses -- committed itself to paying $25-million into the fund over the next five years. .... This publication is an update on some of the things that have happened since March 11, 2003, a date -- it bears repeating -- that marked a turning point rather than an end. The journey continues." -- p. 2.
