"The Senate Committee on Indigenous Peoples has released an interim report on the work of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) and the Office of the Independent Special Interlocutor for Missing Children and Unmarked Graves and Burial Sites associated with Indian Residential Schools. The report, Honouring the Children Who Never Came Home: Truth, Education and Reconciliation, provides an overview of a March 21, 2023 committee meeting that featured testimony from Independent Special Interlocutor Kimberly Murray, NCTR executive director Stephanie Scott, and Indian Residential School Survivor and Elder Barbara Cameron. It was released Wednesday, July 19, 2023. The report includes a table produced by the NCTR summarizing a list of records that could shed light on what happened to the children who attended residential schools and never came home. The committee is determined to hold hearings in the fall of 2023 with entities and organizations that have not released the records. The report also makes five other recommendations focused on supporting residential school Survivors, families and communities. The recommendations — which include providing stable funding for the NCTR and for the Residential Schools Missing Children Community Support Fund — are intended to enable families and communities to finally bring their children home"--Provided by publisher.
