Queen’s University marked an important milestone on Tuesday evening with the release of the final report of the Queen’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission Task Force.

A special event, hosted by Principal Daniel Woolf at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, brought together Queen’s and Kingston community members, as well as Indigenous partners. Many of those present helped guide the work of the university task force, formed in April 2016 to respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s final report on the history and legacy of Canada’s residential school system for Aboriginal children.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission Task Force Final Report is available on the website for the Office of the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic).

More photos and an in-depth article will be published by the Gazette on Wednesday.
