The spiritual core of the NCTR will forever be the statements, documents and other materials gathered by the TRC. This is a sacred bundle that the NCTR will protect and preserve for all time, for the benefit of all Canadians.

The collection at the NCTR Archives continues to grow. New materials, collections and statements continue to come to the Centre regularly. The Centre is a safe space for Indigenous histories and other materials for Indigenous communities.

The NCTR continues to invite Survivors, their families, and others whose lives have been impacted by Residential Schools to share their experiences in a safe and secure setting. The Centre also encourages community members to share their experiences of other Canadian assimilation policies. This encourages conversations on topics such as land claims, water rights, child and family services, education, poverty, and missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.

The Centre may connect you with health supports to assist you during this process and you are welcome to bring extra people for support. Your statement can take any form that you wish: written, audio, video, poetry, art, music, etc. There are no restrictions. If you wish, the NCTR will record your statement for you.
