Indian Residential School History and Dialogue Centre

April 9, 2018

Indian Residential School History and Dialogue Centre – The Centre at UBC opened in 2018 and has facilitated dialogues and access to records and information that support engaging the legacies of the residential school system, and the on-going impacts of colonialism in Canada. This partnership is one of several national MOUs for the Centre, which works in service to Indigenous communities in BC and Canada. The IRSHDC is working on several collaborative projects to assist communities and partners with digital systems development – supporting access to records and information, while also respecting Indigenous protocols for sharing and access. Through this partnership the centres will share information about their systems development, ensuring that on-going system work reflects community input, and is Survivor-informed.
