The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) of Canada was established as a part of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement, a legal settlement reached in 2007 between the Government of Canada, survivors of the Indian Residential School system, and various Indigenous organizations. The TRC's mandate was to address the legacy of the Indian Residential School system and inform all Canadians about the documented truth of Survivors, their families, communities, and anyone affected by the residential school experience (NCTR).
