Doing the Work Guide

On Thursday, August 12th 2021, the Centre for Human Rights Research hosted “Doing the Work: A virtual Q & A on what settlers need to know about the residential school system in Canada.” Following the event, the panel created a resource guide, intended as a living document, with information on residential schools and the impact of colonialism in Canada. This resource guide was updated in August 2023.
