In early March 2008 the spiritual leaders of the Anglican, Presbyterian and United Churches, along with representatives of the Roman Catholic Church, and the National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, participated in a multi-city tour to promote the work of the Indian Residential Schools Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).
The commission, which was officially launched on June 1, 2008, will be an official independent body that will oversee a process to provide former students and anyone who has been affected by the Indian Residential School legacy, with an opportunity to share their individual experiences in a safe and culturally appropriate manner through statement taking or truth-sharing.
As key participants, along with the federal government, in the operation of Indian Residential Schools, the Anglican, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic, and United Churches have committed themselves to full participation in the TRC process.
