Commission headquarters holding open house

  • Print

FOR survivors of residential schools, another step forward begins with an open door.

The public is invited to an open house to celebrate the opening of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Winnipeg headquarters Thursday. The event, which will be held at the new office at 1500-360 Main St., will include appearances by Justice Murray Sinclair and commissioners Marie Wilson and Chief Wilton Littlechild.

Organizers and commission staff will be on hand to answer questions and discuss what the coming months will hold for the commission in Winnipeg. The event, starting at 11:30 a.m., will include performances by aboriginal artists.

The office was opened to help the commission collect the stories of some of the 150,000 aboriginal men and women who suffered in Canada's residential schools.
