#GBC4TRC: What is a residential school?

As the countdown continues to the National Day for Truth & Reconciliation (Orange Shirt Day) on September 30, we wanted to share some videos that might resonate with members of our George Brown community. Today, Audrey Rochette, Director, Indigenous Initiatives, has selected a video from TVO that tackles the topic of residential schools. This brief, two-minute clip provides an excellent answer to the question: what is a residential school?

WARNING: These videos contains details about abuse and the residential school system which some readers may find distressing. Support is available 24/7 through the National Indian Residential School Crisis Line for former students and those affected 1-866-925-4419.
