Since 2015, the Canadian Government, educational institutions, community organizations and Canadians have worked to repair the harm caused by residential schools, but unfortunately work is still needing to be done. The TRC Gathering will focus on the current state of the five categories of the calls to action; child welfare, education, language and culture, health and justice as they pertain to the work within UCN, the communities, Manitoba and Canada.
