A new series of updates will share the Anglican Church of Canada’s ongoing journey towards healing and reconciliation between Aboriginals and non-Aboriginal peoples. Prepared by Archdeacon Jim Boyles, these occasional updates will focus on the church’s work during the term of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) on residential schools.
The first update includes these short stories:
- TRC opens a new office in Winnipeg
- TRC first national event to be held in June in Winnipeg
- An update on the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement (which instated the TRC)
Archdeacon Boyles served as general secretary of the Anglican Church of Canada from 1993 to 2005 and represented the Anglican church to the federal government during the negotiations that led up to the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement. During that time, Archdeacon Boyles wrote a popular series of “Residential Schools updates.” He has recently returned to General Synod to serve as a consultant on residential schools.
These updates will function as a quick go-to for all Anglicans interested in following their church’s work alongside the TRC.
