Description

Honorer la vérité, réconcilier pour l'avenir, Sommaire du rapport final de la Commission de vérité et réconciliation du Canada is the French translation of Final Report of Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission Volume 1 Summary. Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future is a summary of the Commission’s six-volume final report. It identifies the residential schools as an instrument of cultural genocide and, as such, a part of the Canadian government’s broader colonialist policy towards Aboriginal peoples. The report describe how chronic underfunding led to unhealthy living conditions and death rates that were far higher than those experienced by the general Canadian school-aged population. In addition, the report makes it clear that the government had been advised of the implications of its policies and presented with options-which it chose to ignore-that would have reduced the school death rates. The disruption of Aboriginal students, families, and communities created by the schools continues to be felt to this day. It can be measured by the loss of language and family connections in Aboriginal communities and the ongoing gaps between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Canadians in terms of health, education, and employment outcomes. Reconciliation will bring recognition that the residential schools were part of a broader set of policies aimed at depriving Aboriginal people of their lands, their culture, their spirituality, and their governments. The Commission’s ninety-four calls to action describe the concrete measures needed to repair the damaged relationship between Aboriginal peoples and the Crown and to establish respectful relationships between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples.
