TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION RESEARCH CENTRE SEEKS MEMBERS OF GOVERNING CIRCLE

Today, the National Research Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NRCTR) officially releases the Call for Nominations for positions on the Governing Circle. This call invites First Nations, Inuit and Metis organizations, groups, communities and individuals across Canada to submit names for consideration.

 “This is a critically important step in the development of the NRCTR” says Ry Moran, Director of the Centre. “Ensuring we have strong indigenous voices guiding the development of the Centre is essential to our success.”

Highlighting the critical importance of Survivor voices in the governance of the Centre, Moran notes “the Centre will be quickly moving forward on forming a Survivors Circle once the Governing Circle is in place.”

Housed at the University of Manitoba, the NRCTR is working collaboratively with a number of partners and organizations across the country in preparation to accept all documents, statements and other materials collected by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission over the course of its mandate.  

In addition to preserving the sacred memory of these materials, in collaboration with its partners, the NRCTR will play an active role in fostering reconciliation by promoting greater understanding of the residential school system and legacy across Canada.

A review committee comprised of First Nations, Metis, Inuit, Community,  Youth, Survivor, TRC,  partner and University of Manitoba representatives will select members of the Governing Circle. 

The closing date for submissions is August 8, 2014. A link to the Nomination Package can be found here.  A link to the Administrative Agreement governing the NRCTR can be found here.
