The database of the archival documents of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) in Winnipeg features an interactive map of residential schools, and National Events and Hearings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) of Canada on the homepage. The actual database includes more than 40,000 related documents, such as residential school histories, administration records, photos, maps, school newsletters and yearbooks, architectural plans and drawings, religious records from Church organizations of Canada, audio-visual footage from the TRC public events, and TRC Reports and publications, all with a goal of fostering reconciliation and healing. Records will be added to the database on an ongoing basis.
