May 20, 2015

TD Bank Group has gifted $1 M to the University of Manitoba for the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR). The funding will support student interns for the next ten years who will work to process and digitize the materials gathered by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). The NCTR has been created to house the four million historical records and more than 7,000 interviews of residential school survivors. President David Barnard noted that uManitoba is “honoured to help maintain these sacred records, and is committed to ensuring the NCTR is accessed by as many people as possible … We celebrate a transformational contribution to our country’s first and only research centre dedicated to studying the impact of the Canadian Residential School System.” uManitoba News
