The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada raised awareness of the brutalities committed for generations at residential schools and the continued harm this abuse has caused to Indigenous cultures, communities, families and individuals. Through the funding opportunity of the Ministry of Education in Ontario, the project team is dedicated to establishing a new and respectful relationship among all members of our region. We want our community to identify barriers and gaps in our programs and services for members of our Indigenous community and help build the community for our families and their children living and working here in St. Thomas-Elgin.
