Canada: National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) Launches New Website and Archive Database
From the University of Manitoba:
The new and improved National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) website and archive database is now live.
The new, easy-to-navigate website and database ensures we help connect Survivors, Educators, Researchers and those interested in the history of residential schools a comprehensive group of resources. The NCTR holds millions of records, many of which are public records, statements and events available to be explored and understood.
Access to Memory, the newly selected data system that provides Survivors and the public with access to the archives, makes it easier to look up schools, dates, statements and other related items such as attendance records, photos, objects and acts of reconciliation.
The new system also provides the NCTR with the ability to continue its work on decolonizing the archives while accommodating Indigenous languages into the records.
