CCRCE Continues to Mourn all children lost at Residential Schools
We are heartbroken to hear of the continued confirmation of the remains of children found at Residential Schools across Canada.
We acknowledge that there were many children that went to residential schools and never returned home, as survivors testified during the Truth and Reconciliation Inquiry. In Nova Scotia, the Shubenacadie Residential School operated from 1929 to 1967. The legacy of Canada's residential school system continues to have a negative impact on our society, including CCRCE students, staff, families, and school communities.
CCRCE is working towards fulfilling its role in the Treaty relationship. This includes our commitment to Treaty Education and its essential role in understanding and teaching Netukulimk, Etuaptmumk, Mi’kmaw ways of Being and Knowing, and our shared Treaty history as we work towards reconciliation.
We encourage you to join us, and act towards honouring the truth.
