Save Residential School Records

On May 25th, 2017, we will be appearing before the Supreme Court of Canada to advocate for the preservation of the IAP records, which are the largest collection of first hand accounts of residential schools. These records are due to be destroyed in 15 years.

In order to appear at the Supreme Court, we must raise $50,000 by May 25th 2017 to cover the cost of legal fees.


We are able to accept donations by cheque. Please contact [email redacted] for more information.

3.  Shine a light on the intergenerational trauma of residential schools. Upload a video telling us why you #StandForTruth and support the preservation of IAP documents. 

We are the Coalition for the Preservation of Truth whose members are representatives of both residential school survivors and intergenerational residential school survivors.  The coalition is formed to advocate for the preservation of the Indian Residential School Settlement Agreement - Individual Assessment Program’s documents. 
The Coalition recognizes the ongoing impacts of intergenerational trauma and as such, we acknowledge that future generations have a right to know the content of these documents.  The Coalition wishes to preserve these documents while honouring individuals’ rights to privacy.
